XHTML e CSS compatibility Can't Post

First of all compliments for this script developers and a greeting to all forum menbers.

Two weeks ago I saw XHTML e CSS compatibility features in htmlArea site homepage? I was right? I need these features because I working on a project with the goal of accessibility so I must obtain valid W3C XHTML output code.

Luckily Roberto Ellero rewrite htmlArea in W3C compliant version:

but there is still lack of documentation and maybe some bugs. Everybody else is interested on this theme and can help me? Thanks.

Okey, you say you need xhtml output. I disagree. Documents can be accessibel in HTML 4.01 strict. XHTML is not supported by Internet Explorer and therefore a bad choise.
A HTML 4.01 document can be accessibel. There's only one ingredient: semantic markup.
A design build up of tables may validate against XHTML, that does not mean the document is accessibel to the disabled.
So basicly you need an editor that produces semanticly correct markup. As far as I know, htmlArea does not produce semanticly correct (X)HTML. It uses a default execCommand to insert a few semantic elements like P, H1, H2...
If you also need DL, DD, DT, BLOCKQUOTE, CITY, Q and be able to insert groups of semantic elements, you have to write an extension for dealing with this. I can not help you, since I have little time (am working on my own semantic html editor ;))...

You need semantic (X)HTML support? I am affraid you have to insert it yourself

You probably saw an ad for XStandard- it's a true XHTML WYSIWYG eidtor that generates clean and accessible markup. It only uses external CSS for formatting to generate separation of content and formatting. To see show XStandard does this, check out http://xstandard.com/wysiwyg/

Take care,
Vlad

You may have a look at the Indite plugin. It offers much of the same features available in Xstandard for HtmlArea :

Hey there on the HTML Validation issue.

New as well. I am a Web Designer attempting to move CMS sites toward Valid, accessible and SEO optimized CMS sites. We use HTMLArea as the content editing tool.

Would love to be able to omit some of the tags that gets inserted into editable content and causes the page to not validate. Is there a way to modify this tool so that it begins the edited content with a div or table tag instead of a complete chunk of an HTML page? Not to mention would like to omit inline style attributes in any elements added to a site through the editor.

All these sites are controlled by CSS. If we could customize HTMLArea to rid the styling and excessive tags went away this would be close to perfect.
