Sorry to step in this late in the discussion, but this problem has been 
bugging me too for some time. I started trying out the new mozilla 
javascript and came up with two possible solutions.

test1.html is obviously the most interesting approach, but the event api 
lacks the possibility to determine the position of the mouse cursor in 
the text, so I didn't find a way to get to textselections, much less 
make copy/paste work.

test4.html is my poorman's solution, it still gives you the possibility 
of some kind of inline editing, but not as nice as the first example.
Still you can use tab and return to navigate through the editable content.

These examples work in mozilla, but should require only a little work to 
make them work in explorer.
