WYMeditor + ExtJS - DOCTYPE problem

Postby HendrixMH on Mon Apr 05, 2010 10:48 am

I'm working on integrating WYMeditor to ExtJS library
it works very well on FF and Chrome
you can see the demo here

But there is a one big problem
ExtJS requires to NOT to use DOCTYPE declaration to work properly
and WYMeditor requires DOCTYPE declaration to work in IE
the problem was described here also: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=206
so when you start typing something in editor, all content goes white, when you hover the mouse on it, it goes back

So my question is:
is it posible to hack WYMeditor to work without DOCTYPE declaration
maybe you can give me some ideas where to look ?

Removing the doctype will indeed cause WYMeditor to miss behave - but as far as I can tell - ExtJS will work fine with a transitional xhtml doctype.
