I'm trying to apply a texture to only certain faces of a MoText; should be easy, right?

Well I must be doing something wrong. For some reason, when I choose polygon mode + make it editable, I still can't select surfaces. I'm not sure as to what I should do.

Thanks to anyone!

Not quite that simple, I'm afraid. When you make a mograph text object editable it converts each letter into an extrude nurbs, which can't be edited directly. You would have to make the resulting extrude nurbs editable before you can select polygons.
