Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

On Friday, I showed how CoexEdit handles tabbed tables in the standard 8.5.2 xPages discussion without requiring design changes.  Tabbed tables are one of the Top 10 enhancements people want to see in the CKEditor according to Mary Beth Raven. I figured each business day I would go through and show how CoexEdit can fix CKEditor without touching it in any way. If there are any of those ten you would like to see more about, post a comment. Otherwise, I'll just pick one at random.


  1. Pictures (embedded and stored locally) 
  2. Inline attachments 
  3. Spellcheck
  4. Automatic correction 
  5. Sections 
  6. Tabbed tables (done)  Day 1 post
  7. Double, Single, and ½ spacing 
  8. Live text 
  9. Permanent pen 
  10. Automatic capitalization

Incidentally, I want to be clear that I know I am not exactly fixing CKEditor, but instead fixing its use with this feature in web coexistence. Sometimes, that will also fix CKEditor, but there is a distinction.  Also, there are three items (spellcheck, automatic correction and automatic capitalization) which are editor behaviors, so I'll skip those and put in three other features important to web editing coexistence.
