rich text editors for christmas
I’ve been working on gettingÃ‚Â FCKEditor working in Konqueror. This is a very difficult task. I got around the problem of script elements not supporting onload through the use of a brute-force hack, but that is nothing compared to the obstacles that face me.
In order to get the thing working, I need to emulate contenteditable and execCommand.
contenteditable is not a w3c-sanctioned CSS attribute, but is incredibly useful, so both Mozilla and IE have written code for it. Konqueror does not yet support this.
I will need to emulate contenteditable, which allows you to make a page editable (duh). As there is no existing ability for this, I will need to write this from the ground up – trapping key-presses and interpretting them – a bloody nuisance, but there you go…
As for execCommand – that should be a bit easier to emulate – there is a list of preset commands which I will need to emulate. I believe this will not be too difficult – it will be drudge-work, but not difficult.
If anyone knows of any existing KHTML code for any of this, please do tell me.
