More WYSIWYG Fun
By Ben Nitkin on
Previously, I created a custom module to change the symbol set provided by CKEditor, the WYSIWYG text editor on this site. (CKEditor is an applet that shows live formatting instead in lieu of HTML). Since then, a few other flaws have come up.
- Spellcheck is provided by a third party, but doesn't work in Opera. Modern browsers have their own spellcheckers, which were being suppressed.
- CKEditor provides a few styles for theming text. There are two problems with those styles. First, they're inline styles. Second, they're ugly.
- CKEditor uses its own styling. Ordinary formatting such as italics and headings look okay, but styles I've defined don't show up.
