[libreoffice-documentation] New XHP editor online for testing and feedback


Hello everyone,

Olivier and I have been working on a new XHP editor, to simplify the
editing of help documentation. The goals of this editor are:

* Ease of use -- with syntax highlighting and autocompletion
* Web-based -- so it can be used immediately
* Integrated -- into the Gerrit/Git workflow

We're still working on that final point, but for now, you can try the
editor here:

https://newdesign.libreoffice.org/new_help_editor/index.html

To test the autocompletion, start with a blank document and type a "<"
character. You'll see that "helpdocument" is suggested as a top-level
tag. Hit enter to complete it, then add ">".

Now go to another line and add "<" again, and you'll see child tags
suggested: "meta" and "body". You can also close the "helpdocument" tag.
For some tags that have parameters, the editor will show them as well.

Underneath, you see various buttons: undo/redo, starting a new document
(with the basic structure), and various tags/sections. Rendering on the
right-hand pane doesn't work yet, but Olivier is looking at that.

Anyway, play around with it, see what you think, and if you want the
full code to test changes, Olivier can show you how to get it!
