Hi Marc and everyone,

2010/11/9 Marc Paré <>

Hi Carlos:

Nice work on the editor. My comments below:

* the editor does not show in any of the "edit" windows at all (tabs or
edit) !! Pretty important.

Mmm... didn't show on the other pages or on the test page
It's configured to show only on re_test (rich editor test) content type. If
it's considered stable I'll put it available site wide.

* I am now of the opinion that it is a shame that the default fonts are all
MS fonts.

Totally agree :( This is what CKEditor generates:

For Arial option:
style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; "

For Courier New option:
style="font-family: 'courier new', courier, monospace; "

For Verdana option:
style="font-family: verdana, geneva, sans-serif; "

For Times New Roman:
style="font-family: 'times new roman', times, serif; "

I would love it if the W3C would speak to this and issue a recommendation
(or even make it part of W3C specs) that only open source fonts were
acceptable. The W3C could go one step further in making a set of internet
opensource fonts part of the W3C standard.

Anyway, it would be neat if we could lead the way on this and build the
site on OSS fonts and have our editors use the same font sets. LibO has some
influence. We have over 100 million users (according to the OOo site)

That's what we can do:

To hack CKEditor font dialog to show only free fonts options. We will need
to change their styles generation for something like this:

Option Liberation Sans:
style="font-family: 'Liberation Sans', 'Arial', sans; "

Option Liberation Serif:
style="font-family: 'Liberation Serif', 'Times New Roman', times, serif; "

Option Liberation Mono:
style="font-family: 'Liberation Mono', 'Courier New', courier, monospace; "

Then, in my custom Drupal module for CKEditor we can add a extra CSS with
all the required fonts in a CSS3 @font-face format. This might add an extra
load on the site the first time, then the fonts are cached so no problem.

On the other thread (in documentation I think) Michael and other mentioned
the following fonts:


We need to define a small subset to use in the site.

* photo uploads -- still not sure on this. Are you saying that if we have
JavaScript enabled that we should see an image upload icon? I can't see a
way to upload images.

Heee... I'm not sure what did you saw, for me it's pretty clear how to add
and image :S This is the screenshot of the test edit page:

Are you sure you entered

Anyway, if it's not clear could you please give some advice to improve the
user interface and usability, I'm kind of lost.

Kind regards
