Partial Composer++ Landing Improves Positioning and Inline Table Editing Support

Wednesday June 25th, 2003

Daniel Glazman writes: "Composer has a few new features, checked in today with the fix for bug 137092: (1) support for Absolute Positioning (2) positioned elements are movable on the canvas and resizable (3) their z-index can be increased (bring to front) or decreased (send to back) (4) a grid can be enabled/disabled to make sure the coordinates of a positioned element are multiples of a given grid size (5) and finally 'inline table editing' buttons, allowing you to insert/remove a line/column in one click, are displayed on a cell's left and top border when the selection is contained in a table cell. This last feature is also enabled in HTML email and we'll see if HTML mail users like it or not. If not, we can very easily disable it. All these features were part of the Composer++ plan." More details are available in Daniel's latest weblog posting.

I'll second that. And third it.

Beyond coding web pages - since I'm trying to create as many of my documents in straight HTML+CSS instead of using a word processor, a high-quality WYSIWYG editor is really very important to me.
