Cleaning up htmlArea's code?


The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

Cleaning up htmlArea's code? Can't Post

Hey all...

Me and a coworker have been looking at the code html creates, and noticed it is more-or-less horrible.

It works, but its not proper by any means. And actually, in some cases, it doesnt work for anything besides windows IE.

Has anyone attempted at fixing this? i.e. We have centered text with <h3 align="center"> for IE but not Firefox... a great illustration

of the "bad code" can be seen at: http://www.floridaconference.com/childmin

(im unsure how long it will be broken..) but comparing with multiple browsers/os's the page renders differently for each!

Any fixes or suggestions?

Thanks

What Browser you used ? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hmm all our CMS-Systems uses HTMLArea3 (based on first beta) and if our clients dont use the msie for writing text all pages are 100 % wc3-compliant and works with msie, firefox, mozilla, opera, safari.

use firefox and you get better code - most will be created from the browser and not htmlarea itself

try using the htmltidy-plugin and you will get much cleaner code...
