Any requests for Day 3 of my 'CKEditor fixed' series?

On Friday, I showed how CoexEdit handles tabbed tables in the standard 8.5.2 xPages discussion without requiring design changes.  Stephan Wissell suggested that I tackle inline attachments next, so I posted about how they can be handled better.  Both are from 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 (done)  Day 2 post
  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

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 four items (spellcheck, automatic correction, Permanent pen and automatic capitalization) which are editor behaviors, so I'll skip those and put in four other features important to web editing coexistence, trying to synch them up with the four features I can't directly fix..

I can't really do Permanent pen, since it is an editor function rather than a data storage and conversion issue.

I've just started dabbling with the discussion database. Didn't know what you were talking about the other day - but I'm learning fast! :-)

Double single and half spacing would be good.
