How Do You Like the New Editor?

How do you like the new editor?  It's called the CKEditor, and it shows you how the text of your Instructables and comments look while you are editing them.

It was quite an undertaking to convert all the existing text on the site, so if you see anything awry, let us know.

Firefox's spellchecker now works within the editor, and we've disabled the annoying pop-up paste function.  Sorry we didn't catch both issues earlier, but they only appeared on certain browsers (FF3, not FF2).

If you are still having issues, try clearing your cache and doing a hard refresh.

We're stilling fighting with the context menu, which allows you to select a suggested spelling of a word.

If you misspell something, it gets underlined in FF, but you still can't right-click it to choose the correct spelling.  We're working on fixing this, too.

I dont think any of the formatted text in any of my 'ibles displays correctly and I haven't been able to utilize any formatting (formatted text, subscript, etc) since the change. :(

I notice a number of people's comments appear to have had the HTML reverted from them- at first I took it for someone accidentally putting tags in the comment text while not in source mode but it looks like it's more widespread than that.

I'm not at all surprised to see that my 1995-homepage post abusing tables and other tags has been un-HTML-ified, and some of the <big><big><big><big><big><big> etc. ones.

Could we have a clarification of which HTML we are allowed to use in source mode?  I'm not complaining here, just don't want to keep setting off some alert somewhere saying "someone's trying to do XSS attacks with HTML comments".  I'd also hate to fail some verification thing because I don't close a <br> tag or something like that.

Just out of curiosity, what method did you use to achieve that?  The style pull-down, keyboard short cuts, or pasting from another source?

Hey, it *is* much faster.  Thank you, I'bles!
I'll PM it too you as I don't really want to blurt it out everywhere.
It also seems to be loading much faster now :)
