Did anybody considered using other client side technologies than
JavaScript, like using a Java Applet or Flash as the editor? Maybe they
can capture paste events and such (I don't know...), also they have much
less cross-browser problems (like they work with Opera and Safari). Yes,
they can't render HTML on the same way the browser, but after all, if we
are talking about a place where users enter pure content (I mean,
structure) then maybe it is not a that big problem. I mean, the user
sees clearly that he has made a paragraph here and ha level 1 heading
there, even if he doesn't see how will it exactly look regarding the
visual design. At least (s)he will concentrate on content rather than on
visual design. Anyway, I think that HTML is not the ideal scheme for
entering content.
