[ossig] WYSIWYG xhtml editor for CMS



Hello all,

Sorry if you guys already know of this but I recently
came across an interesting item:

http://kupu.oscom.org/

If you're doing a lot of CMS type development, it
might be useful. (Especially if your co-developers /
users don't like to fiddle with textual markup)

Here's the gist:
---------------
What is Kupu?

Kupu is a 'document-centric' open source client-side
editor for Mozilla, Netscape and Internet Explorer.
Inspired by Maik Jablonski's Epoz editor, it was
written by Paul Everitt, Guido Wesdorp and Philipp von
Weitershausen (and several other contributors, for a
complete list refer to the CREDITS.txt file) to
improve the JavaScript code and architecture,
pluggability, standards support, support for other
webservers than Zope (which was the original target
platform for Epoz), configurability and a lot of other
issues.
Kupu's features

    * Easy to integrate - Kupu can be easily
integrated into a variety of CMS. Currently there is
integration code for Zope 2, Silva, Plone and Apache
Lenya. We hope to add code for integrating Kupu into
MMBase, Interchange and more in the near future.
    * Easy to customize and extend - Kupu can be
customized and extended in several ways. For simple
modifications much of the configuration can be set as
attributes on the editor iframe, while buttons, tools
and layout can be changed via the CSS. For larger
customizations there's a simple JavaScript plugin API,
and also the core has a clean and solid architecture
to allow full extensibility.
    * High-tech and up-to-date - Kupu uses CSS in
favor of HTML for layout and presentation. It supports
asynchronous saving to the server. It sets event
handlers from code instead of from the HTML (excepting
the toolbar), which makes the code a lot cleaner. It
uses DOM functionality to build up HTML. On those and
other fronts it tries to use the most modern
standardized techniques available on all supported
browsers to ensure a good user-experience and clean
code.
