Re: WYSIWYG message board?

/me uses a wysiwyg CMS to develop a site for a client, and Mozilla FireFox has NO trouble rendering that at all, neither does Safari.
Another site I'm doing I've had to remove the XHTML DTD and some XHTML, as IE was choking on it, and completely screwing up the whole site. (In other words, I've had to waste time recoding the site, simply because the worst browser is the most popular/most used. As soon as people realise this, and move to browsers that are more standards compliant, and easier to code for, the better imo).

Maybe.. is easy for the dev team that you can setup a script that can detect the user's browser (and version) so the system can select the correct way to display postingbody (WYSIWYG or just plain bbcode).. also the user selectable feature is great is great if the user wants to select his format.

But, the auto selection of the system is more dynamic because, for example, if i am using Firebird one day on my house and IE tomorrow at work, the board will auto change my posting body to fit the browser's functionality.

That'd suck more bandwidth than needed, and still not be perfect. IIRC, Opera can pretend to be Internet Explorer.

I was impressed that the david roth editor is down to something like 7k.

Not "complete" cross browser support. Gave it a try in Opera and had to reboot, though that could have been a coincidence. I'm not going to try it again to find out; Opera doesn't support the non-standard feature the author mentions whether the product crashes Opera users' computers or not.
