Safari 1.3 and 2.0 support coming soon

June 8, 2005 | Uncategorized | 0 Comments

FreeTextBox (like all other JavaScript HTML editors) supports browsers
that have the ‘contentEditable’ attribute enabled and the
‘document.execCommand’ method. IE 5.0 for Windows was the first to
enable this, then Mozilla started supporting it with their 2003/06/24
build. Now, Safari 1.3 for Mac OSX 10.3.9 and Safar 2.0 for Mac OSX
10.4 (Tiger) has enabled some support for (original post, example editor)

I
am working to enable Safari 1.3 and 2.0 support for the next version of
FreeTextBox. It’s a fun challenge and will hopefully broaden ASP.NET
and FreeTextBox’s usefulness.

Update: Just FYI, Safari
support (if I can get it working) will probably be pretty spotty. Right
now, it appears Safari looses focus on selected text when a button is
pressed!

Hi, I'm John Dyer. In my day job, I build websites and create online seminary software for a seminary in Dallas. I also like to release open source tools including a pretty popular HTML5 video player and build tools that help people find best bible commentaries and do bible study. And just for fun, I also wrote a book on the theology of technology and media.
