Without more details I'm not sure what you're trying to do exactly, but it sounds like you may need to write your own snippet module.

Small numbers of bacteria cause little harm. However, when the population increases, their negative effects are multiplied. Despite large investments of time and money, scientists have found it difficult to control bacterial populations. Three factors operate in favor of the bacteria: their reproductive rate, their ability to form resistant stages, and their ability to mutate and produce strains that resist antibiotics and other control agents.&lt;/p&gt;

   &lt;p class="Indent01" id="xpp-2014582732321794086-2"&gt;Under ideal conditions, some bacteria can grow and divide every 20 minutes. If one bacterial cell and all its offspring were to reproduce at this ideal rate, in 48 hours there would be 2.2 &amp;times; 10 43 cells. In reality, bacteria cannot achieve such incredibly large populations, because ... </htmlBody>
