 This Client Side content editor will be compliant with Apache's 
 I very appraciate this editor. And I will try to integrate with DB 
Prism / Cocoon2 CMS. You could see DB Prism Cocoon2 CMS at work at
 DB Prism CMS has this mainly funcionality:
  - Compliant with apache's document-v10.dtd (plus SVG images inside 
this document), see Apache docs uploaded to the CMS.
  - Pure content agregation support, now including header,content and 
news feeds by
  - Simple, compared with Oracle iFS CMS or
  - It works.
  - Fully integrated with Cocoon2 cache, sinchronized by an External 
Cache Invalidator ("a la" Oracle Web Cache).
  - Integrated Search engine compatible with Altavista (tm) syntax using 
Oracle interMedia.
  - Paralelized content agregation through DBPrismGenerator.
  and more...
  Best regards, Marcelo.
