It'd be trivial to do, but I don't have the time to fuss with it.
Basically, record a macro with generic text, then go to the macro
editor and replace the text with the variable "Selection$()" -- that's
the variable that's equivalent to whatever text is selected.

At least, that's how it'd work in WordBasic. I don't know VBA well
enough to know if the variable is the same.
