Lets do some testing!

August 20th, 2004

I stumbled upon something really cool yesterday that I wanted to test out. So, without much further ado, go here and use username ‘dhtml’ password ‘password’ to try out this cool new thing. If you have seen or used it already, it will be a let down, but if you have not, it might get your attention. Once you are there, use it for everything it is worth. :P

PS: proper attribution and further discussion on this will be forthcoming as and when I finish integerating/developing some of the newer peices I have in mind. If there is enough interest, I might put together some kind of install for it. Also, click on the little ‘?’ to get more info once you are there!

Also, quit being a stranger and leave some comments!

    Hi Mark
    Yeah, I really liked it. I know it could do with a bit more development but I’m sure that will be in the pipeline. By the way, I’m not dead, but I have been very busy and, when I get the time, I’d like to have a chat with you about using blogs within an educational context – re your post from a couple of days ago.

    Cool, some of those buttons are not needed, though, I guess, like the “new page” button.

    Nifty! WYSIWYG WP. Would be great for leaving comments as well…

    Uhm, the HTML it generates is about as bad as htmlArea’s. Capitalized tags, use of FONT to set the font, and no possibility (as far as I can see) for binding custom divs or styles to particular operations. Oh… and I miss an insert image option.

    I really look forward to the day there will be a standards-compliant WYSIWYG textbox editor. It would make the life of the non-techie people I help publish on the web sooo much easier, not to mention my own…

    I mostly agree with you, though this is a step in the right direction. There IS an XHTML component of fckeditor which has a bug and has been turned off. However, this is open source and has a lot of possibilities. Custom divs, tags, removal of font tags etc are superficial and can be done before deployment. More on that soon.

    PS: the Insert image works, though not on my install.

    Good stuff. I’m glad that others are concerned with the standards compliance, myself I just look forward to writing in WYSIWYG.

    I’m not a coder (maybe I should become one!) but I’m looking forward to developments in this field. Frankly, I’ve been wondering since 2000 or so, when blogs started to make their appearance, that there simply is no good WYSIWYG textbox entry tool. It’s not a big problem for me personally since I know HTML, but like I said, it’s a problem for the non-techie people. Apparently the problem is not trivial. Or maybe all the techie people know HTML as well and don’t see the lack as problematic.
