Rich Text Editors

As a regular reader of this blog, you may have noticed the different line-spacing on my last two posts.
I started using the 'Compose' editor in Blogger, instead of the 'Edit HTML' editor.

The 'Compose' Editor only started working for me recently, once Safari 3 came out. It is easier to use, but I am not sure I like the tighter spacing for reasons of readability.

As an aside, I was mildly shocked recently to realise that when you use some of the new breed of RTEs like the one on Dojo 1.0, the output HTML is different, depending on the browser you use.

While it is really great that cross-browser/platform RTEs are becoming a reality, I imagine that this lack of consistency is going to freak the bejebus out of some content-management types I know.

That's exactly why we have put that HTMLCleaner component in Daisy. In Daisy, we ensure (serverside) that content can be edited simultaneously on both IE and Firefox without much hastle.
