Enable enhanced HTML generation via LotusScript

I have about 850 applications that now needs enhanced HTML generation enabled. As far as I know, the only way to enable this in an application is via LS or manually.

Here's example code for enabling it with LS for one db:
Dim s As New NotesSession, db As NotesDatabase
Set db = s.currentDatabase

'// Fetch the db icon document
Dim col As NotesNoteCollection, doc As NotesDocument
Set col = db.createNoteCollection( False )
col.selectIcon = True
Call col.buildCollection()

'// Enable enhanced HTML
Set doc = db.getDocumentById( col.getFirstNoteId() )
Call doc.replaceItemValue( "$AllowPost8HTML", "1" )
Call True, False )
I found the solution here.

Thanks! I really appreciate this. I've been trying to figure out how to script this database property change for months, without any luck. I never would have guessed that it was stored in the database icon document.

No problem :)

I don't think anyone would have guessed it. I suspect the reason they put it there has something to do with backwards compatibility, but who knows..
