Hi all Mac people.
I would greatly appreciate your help.
On MAC Ie browser, is there any chance to lauch WYSIWYG html editor? Just like many CMS systems use to edit content.
Please, let me know which version of IE does support that or which IE browser preferences are to be on?

Thanks in advance

Hi NeoN,

afaik there's no such thing built in IE.

I can imagine, you allready know this, but there are some good standalone wysiwyg editors for the mac - Golive [adobe.com] and DreamWeaver [macromedia.com] are two of the best known. At least in Golive you can predefine different Browsers to check and browse the pages you work on.

I think s/he means launching a WYSIWYG editor like Dreamweaver, GoLive or FrontPage from MacIE, like you can in WinIE.

Anyhow, no WYSIWYG editor is actually built into IE. However, there is in Netscape.

There is a flash based one that works with Mac browsers. It is available from Ektron.

There are some java based in-browser wysiwig editors. Look for HTMLJive.

Finally, you could always try the javascript/bbcode approach, as can be seen on many bulletin boards. These have buttons allowing users to click a button to insert the correct html tags in the text box.
