This is worth a bit of a discussion.

We're trying to make our editor a little easier to use. We've also worked really, really hard to ensure that all articles on CodeProject have a consistent look and feel. This has been a critical point for us forever.

In order to make things consistent we limit the tags that can be added and we will go in and fix up formatting that's messed up. You've seen the sorts of things that get posted. To give every article a chance we need to sometimes hose it down and give it some fresh clothes.

One way to ensure consistency, and a way many editor components have moved towards, is to simply remove the concept of markup. You edit in design mode and there is no markup, no HTML. Your formatting is limited to what's available in the formatting options.

Personally I'm not a fan of this because I'm a control freak, but it does enable us to ensure a more consistent look and feel for new articles.

So, ultimately, what formatting do you need that would ever be removed by a CodeProject editor? To put it another way, what formatting features do you need that are "non-standard"? The only things I can think of are
  • colours
  • specific padding and margins
  • floating elements such as images
  • specific fonts (eg for discussions on design)
Anything else?
cheers
Chris Maunder
