upgraded rich text editor

Just wanted to let everyone know that we upgraded our WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) rich text editor. We are fans of the open source FCK-editor project and use their rich text editor in Spirit and Recordit. Previously, we were using version 2.4.3 which did not play well with Safari and had some other case specific problems for some of our users.

We have upgraded the editor to the latest version 2.6.0 which does play well with Safari. We have also reconfigured how it generates HTML. It will no longer wrap text in <p> tags and inserts <br /> tags instead of empty <p> tags for break-returns. This should help out folks that were running into problems between their CSS and the HTML made by the editor. Should make life just a little bit better.

Here is a screen shot of the editor with all its goodness :)
