about the project
In the autumn of 2001 we had to visit a Java course. Our job
was to develop something with this oh-so-cool programming
language. Well we weren't (and still aren't) real fans of Java.
But we told ourselves: "If we must create such a project
it should at least be something useful". As we haven't
found any decent free (as in beer and as in speech) Java
applet to edit text this was a good choice.
Our goals for the eight cours days were to create an applet that
can be used to edit HTML text with a almost-WYSIWYG interface.
So the formattings bold, italic, underline and embedding links
were our main goals.
We decided to release it to the public because
one of us is an open-source
fanatic and because we think that such an applet could be useful
for many people, not only for our teacher...
At the moment there are still a lot of bugs and probably even
more which haven't been found yet. So please use the
bug tracking system, please. Thank you.
