    Hi all
    I've noticed while using Safari that some forums don't work properly when trying to type in the maini blog content box. This seems to be mostly on Ning based sites. Would moving over to iCab or Atomic fix this?

    Thanks guys

    No. Unfortunately, neither iCab nor Atomic will work. In fact, no browser based on Apple's Mobile WebKit supports editing in a DIV or IFRAME which is what these web based rich text editors do.

    Newer versions of rich text editor packages like CKEdit detect the iPad and fall back to using a standard text field. Some community software, like Wikia sites have a preferences option to turn off rich text entry.

    Perhaps we'll see support in iOS 5.x

    Hi Don
    Thanks for that, worth asking though. We await iOS 5.x then, just wish 4 would hurry up and get released lol
