h1. wysihtml5 0.3.0

wysihtml5 is an open source rich text editor based on HTML5 technology and the progressive-enhancement approach. It uses a sophisticated security concept and aims to generate fully valid HTML5 markup by preventing unmaintainable tag soups and inline styles. The code is completely library agnostic: No jQuery, Prototype or similar is required.

This project was initiated and is supported by the "XING AG": Thanks!

h2. Features

  • Auto linking of urls as-you-type
  • Generates valid and semantic HTML5 markup (no ``)
  • Uses class-names instead of inline styles
  • Unifies line-break handling across browsers (hitting enter will create instead of or `) Auto-parses content inserted via copy & paste (from Word, Powerpoint, PDF, other web pages, ...) Converts invalid or unknown html tags into valid/similar tags Source code view for users with HTML skills Uses sandboxed iframes in order to prevent identity theft through XSS Editor inherits styles and attributes (placeholder, autofocus, ...) from original textarea (you only have to style one element) Speech-input for Chrome

h2. Browser Support

The rich text editing interface is supported in IE8+, FF 3.5+, Safari 4+, Safari on iOS 5+, Opera 11+ and Chrome. Graceful Degradation: Users with other browsers will see the textarea and are still able to write plain HTML by themselves.
