The big annoyance I had with CoexEdit as implemented on IdeaJam is that I couldn't just paste in a link and have it clickable. I asked Bruce and he told me I had to use the link button, which I always forget. Also, when I pasted in a link it gave an error made FireFox really unstable.
I'm not knocking CoexEdit, I'm just saying when I did use it, it wasn't quite as intuitive as I would like. I'll admit it could be better now. I haven't tried it in a while. :-)

Charles - That is a bug that the specific version of FCKeditor (the web editor being used with CoexEdit) used by IdeaJam had with Firefox. It worked properly with Internet Explorer, and it works properly in later versions with Firefox. I'll have to check and see if the public site still has that problem, in which case I should get Bruce to upgrade it. Thanks for the feedback, as that is the kind of thing which is easy to miss when you are used to working around it (meaning, I have always used the link icon so I forgot it was a problem there).

It doesn't work with opera :-) Displays nice, but afterwards you get the source displayed (with the br-tag and so on...

The link in the blog to CoexEdit is invalid.
