Subject AW: XHTML WYSIWYG editing (was: Re: sharing microsoft experience)
Date Mon, 26 Nov 2001 16:41:28 GMT
Well, it's not exactly WYSIWYG as Java will always render a HTML page
differently than the IE.
For my CMS I decided for me, that - as I'm using XML/XSL - the authors
should provide what they can - just data. I don't want that they can change
the look of the pages besides the content.
If they need another layout - it's a task for a screen designer/xslt

Another commercial alternative:
Did you take a look at edit-on Pro 2.1 (
It's a really cool full wysiwyg HTML/XHTML editor applet with support for
rich formatting, inline images, tables(!) and it is customizable and
extensible (well, in some ways; its without source, of course).

It's a JDK1.1 based applet, so runs even in older browser and has not the
need of  a Java2 JRE. The Support from the company is very well.

We used this control in a big web-based content management system based on
Cocoon 2 for editing formatted XHTML-Fragments.
