In Part 1, I showed how IBM's rendering of MIME messages could lead your customers to think you were still running Notes R5, and how iFidelity, in beta now, would allow you to send out more professional looking email, rendered as it is in Notes. In Part 2, I showed how content rendered by Domino on the web was likely to make prospective customers think twice, or more, before buying Lotus Notes, and how CoexEdit could dramatically improve that default rendering. In this part, I will show how rendering is made even worse when edited on the web, and how CoexEdit can improve that process as well.
1) Notes 8.0.1 (looks the same in Notes 8.5 beta as you might expect)
2) Firefox 3 before editing (rendered by Domino 8.0.1 on top, CoexEdit on bottom)
3) Firefox 3 during editing ("Best Fit for OS" with Domino 8.0.1 on top, CoexEdit on bottom)
4) Firefox 3 after saving (rendered by Domino 8.0.1 on top, CoexEdit on bottom)
5) In Notes 8.0.1 client after saving with Firefox 3 (rendered by Domino 8.0.1 on top, CoexEdit on bottom)
6) Internet Explorer 7 before editing (rendered by Domino 8.0.1 on top, CoexEdit on bottom)
7) Internet Explorer 7 during editing ("Best Fit for OS" with Domino 8.0.1 on top, CoexEdit on bottom)
8) Internet Explorer 7 after saving (rendered by Domino 8.0.1 on top, CoexEdit on bottom)
9) In Notes 8.0.1 client after saving with IE7 (rendered by Domino 8.0.1 on top, CoexEdit on bottom)
10) Firefox 3 before editing (rendered by Domino 8.5 beta, CoexEdit on bottom)
For reasons that are not clear to me, the doclinks don't show up at all in the Domino rendering, whether they are from a local replica or not. I will report that as a bug.

That's quite impressive, as it shows that CoexEdit works in all situations correctly, while Domino fails in most situations, or at least fails to be coherent in a few situations.

Mika - Thanks! We aim to please.
