How do I make an Arbortext macro end with an open dialog box

I want to create a macro that starts where the cursor is, finds a spot in an xml doc, opens the Modify Attributes dialog box, and "tabs" to a certain attribute. I can get to the spot, but the dialog box doesn't open. Not sure how to make that happen. Here's what I have:

<script type="application/x-acl"><![CDATA[ 

  LeftArrowKey;

  LineDownExtend;

  LineDown;

  RightArrowKey;

  #ModifyAttributes;]]></script>

Possibly useful context: I'm working with data divided into <section>, and section has a point attribute. I want to populate the point attribute. close the Modify Attributes dialog, then have the macro find the next section element, open the Modify Attributes dialog, and go to the point attribute box, then end the macro, populate the attribute, close the dialog and run the macro again, rinse, repeat.

Any ideas?
