Subject RE: Fw: WYSIWYG XML editor via JS/ActiveX
Date Thu, 30 May 2002 08:47:24 GMT
There are many people interested in a cross browser solution and I think
it's only a question of a few months. At you find the description
and many comments on the famous "content-editable"-attribute for mozilla.
The target-milestone is mozilla_1.1alpha and when you have a look at mozilla_1.1 will be
released at the end of july.

(Is this information up to date?)

Is there anyone working on an XML-based-editor (as input it needs a
DTD/Schema [content] and a stylesheet [presentation] and the output is valid
XML) based on this upcoming Mozilla feature?

At I found:

"Microsoft's Internet Explorer version 5.5 and up supports a very useful
feature called contenteditable. ContentEditable enables easy in-place
editing of HTML by just setting an attribute or property.

At this moment Mozilla lacks this feature. There are however plans to
incorporate it in Mozilla version 1.1.

Xopus is all about ease of use. In order to make an easy to use Mozilla
version of Xopus we needed this feature.
We didn't want to wait for Mozilla 1.1 so we developed an implementation of
contenteditable for Mozilla.

We would like to stress this solution is only temporary. Mozilla's
implementation will one day make this implementation obsolete."

Does this mean future versions of Xopus will support Mozilla with the
features (DTD/Schema + Stylesheet) described above?
