Restricted and Unrestricted modes: You can choose to create HTML code compatible with more restrictive sites, specifically Stumbleupon, or one that uses full force of HTML and CSS.
Custom fonts: You can add your favourite fonts to the list of fonts provided in wySUwyg
Boxes:Add stylish box elements — even to some sites that do not support the Div tag.
Box re-sizing: A slider based interface to reside boxes for an exact fit.
StumbleUpon Specific Features
All the page styles available on SU are preloaded in wySUwyg. So you can just switch styles according to your blog or the forum page you're on. And you can switch at any time, in the middle of the editing.
The content width matches closely with that of SU. So lines wrap (almost) exactly the same in the editor as they look in SU.
'Enter' Key will insert a newline, and not a new paragraph
Centre-Aligning anything will work exactly as SU demands, no css style tags but <center> tag.
Resizing images by gripping and dragging will always produce SU friendly code, unlike that in default Xinha (and Xinha Here) where inline style declarations made SU discard the width and height attributes and show the image in original size.
Bold will insert <b> tags. Italics and strike will work well too.
Lists will be only as fancy as SU can stomach.
In short- Everything that's available on the toolbar will work to the whims of StumbleUpon, and there will be (generally) no surprises after you post the matter on SU.
Any <P>tags, which SU hates, will be automatically stripped.
Even though wySUwyg is primarily developed for StumbleUpon users,
you can use it with just about any form-based interface on the Web. This includes sites like blogger, gmail, flickr, and countless other. Try it out and see how convenient it is.
The Err,Umm... List
Here are some things I think or know need rectifying in the coming versions:
The drag & drop feature does not work for Images on Linux [Fixed in Version2]
Inserting <br> for all carriage returns renders the html code less human-readable...(I did that so the text looks exactly the same in the editor as it does on SU.)
The text-decoration for links doesn't exactly match that of SU.
The editor page doesn't use the real-estate wisely, especially in the Tabbed version. [Partially fixed in Version2]
No in-built spellcheck. The context menu hides spelling suggestions from (However Google toolbar's spellcheck and Spellbound work well with wySUwyg.To use the in-built spellchecker in Firefox 2.0, switch to source-code mode temporarily.)
No i18n yet, the only language in this version's interface is English.
Right now, it's available only for Firefox At some time I'd like to tackle compatibility for Mozilla proper and Netscape.
