We’re pleased to announce that we’ve added two new features to TypePad: Rich text editing, aka “WYSIWYG” (What You See is What You Get); and an Integrated spell checker.
TypePad released their new outstanding feature of WYSIWYG Rich Text Editing form. In fact, I've tended to think these kinds of User Interface are something thought to be dull for geeks who can edit raw HTML by hand (like me). However, this TypePad's RTE has made me change my mind a little, because:
Though its script seems to be based on htmlarea, the generated HTML is more sophisticated than that, as it's based on HTML and CSS standards. For instance, the "B" button does not generate <B> tag, but <strong> tag, more prefered one in HTML standards these days. Similarly, "Font Color" button doesn't generate <FONT color=""> stuff, but <span style="color:#xxxxxx">.
My applause to TypePad User Interface designers and programmers.
