Thanks for your reply, Jaap.

Sorry for being unclear: I didn't make a plugin.  I just edited
pageview.py, duplicated that InsertDateDialog class, renamed it, and
edited a few lines.  It works, except that I don't know how to call
toggle_format_strong() to toggle bold text (assuming that's the best
way).  How do I access that function?
