Hello all,

First of all, I love WYMeditor. It's still the only editor in town that maintains a proper focus on semantic markup and css out of the box and we use it extensively as a document editor.

One of the big pain points our users have right now is with list editing and the ability to deal with large lists. Specifically, they'd like to be able to highlight multiple list elements, hit indent, and have it indent all of them at once instead of just the first/top. I've gone in and tried to hack a fix for this a couple of times, but the kicker has always been supporting internet explorer's DOM Range object. If I could ignore ie, it wouldn't be bad at all.

That thought line led me to find: http://github.com/timcameronryan/IERange

It's a fairly solid implementation of the w3c DOM Range API and I'd love to be able to use it to save myself some headache. I was wondering though, if I got a tested and working implementation of multiple highlight + indent using that library, would there be any interest in including it in trunk? I'd very much prefer to contribute that work back if possible.

Thanks
-Wes

Hi Wes!
It's great that you like what we do, and that you've found some use for WYMeditor!

We're actually looking to implement IERange in the next major version of WYMeditor (2.0), see the roadmap for 2.0 (just published). Anny kind of help with that is appreciated. Once we get 1.0 out the door this will be at least my primary focus.

Cheers!
