Cross-Browser Text Editing

Some people have pointed out that SharePoint doesn’t support cross-browser editing of HTML pages. This is true, when you use the built-in editor in SharePoint to edit HTMLpages, the editing controls don’t work with some browsers. I have already realised this, and the plan is at some point to drop in the Telerik RADEditor .

This editor will give us cross-browser compatibility for HTML editing, as well as ensuring standards compliance

RadEditor v5.0 introduces a number of new features, which help the user paste formatted content from Microsoft Word and other applications, and apply different types of format stripping:
1. Strip Word-formatting on paste
2. Strip Word-formatting on paste (cleaning fonts and sizes)
3. Forced format stripping on Paste
4. Word Content in Clipboard Interception
5. Strip Word-formatting after paste
6. Paste plain text
7. Paste as HTML


The image manager of RadEditor v5.0 has been enhanced to allow image resampling (thumbnail generation) of files, which are already located on the web-server. the past versions allowed image resampling only during upload. Thumbnails can also be generated from the Image Properties dialog (Image context menu).

I don’t have any timescales for this at present, but it is on my todo list.
