Are you familar with inline editing? Mozilla has a flavor
( and IE has its "contentEditable" tag. It
has been around for years, so I am not sure why it is not used more
often in CMS applications. I don't think there is a cross-browser
solution presently, so I have thought about dedicating my support to
that goal. The full page plugin for htmlArea is actually similar to
inline editing, except I don't believe that you can define different
regions of a page as being editable or non-editable with the full page
plugin. What is your opinion on inline editing compared to something
like htmlArea?

I believe that Dirk Holtwick had some preliminary work done in this area (Ticket #7), Dirk perhaps you could comment on this?

I am working on something of this nature in conjunction with Xinha while still keeping with the iframe setup. It works wonders except for CSS quirks and things like the context menu being clipped by the iframe. I have submitted a ticket for the former and will hopefully be working on it soon. The later seems inevitable with iframes.
