avoid confusion, both types are ignored by this fix.
- On some very rare cases, IE was loosing the "align"

- [SF BUG-1388799] The code formatter was removing spaces on the beginning of

[SF BUG-1326285] [SF BUG-1316430] [SF BUG-1323662] [SF BUG-1326223] We are doing a little step back with this
version. The ENTER and BACKSPACE behavior changes for Firefox have been

A nice contribution has been done by Goss Interactive Ltd:
[SF BUG-1246949] Implemented ENTER key and BACKSPACE key
handlers for Gecko so that P tags (or an appropriate block element) get
inserted instead of BR tags when not in the UseBROnCarriageReturn config mode.
The ENTER key handling has been written to function much the same as the ENTER
key handling on IE : as soon as the ENTER key is pressed, existing content will
be wrapped with a suitable block element (P tag) as appropriate and a new block
element (P tag) will be started.
The ENTER key handler also caters for pressing ENTER within empty list items -
ENTER in an empty item at the top of a list will remove that list item and
start a new P tag above the list; ENTER in an empty item at the bottom of a
list will remove that list item and start a new P tag below the list; ENTER in
an empty item in the middle of a list will remove that list item, split the
list into two, and start a new P tag between the two lists.
Any tables that are found to be incorrectly nested within a block element (P
tag) will be moved out of the block element when loaded into the editor. This
is required for the new ENTER/BACKSPACE key handlers and it also avoids
The InsertOrderedList and InsertUnorderedList commands have been overridden on
Gecko to ensure that block elements (P tags) are placed around a list item's
content when it is moved out of the list due to clicking on the editor's list
toolbar buttons (when not in the UseBROnCarriageReturn config mode).
[SF BUG-1253255] [SF BUG-1265520] Due to changes on version 2.0, the

correctly. It has been changed to set the editor hidden at startup.

div. Workarounds have been introduced. In any case, the testcase 004 hack is

An invalid path in the dialogs CSS file has been corrected.

] A few Undo/Redo fixes for IE have been done.

the shortcut keys for Bold (CTRL+B), Italic (CTRL+I) and Underline (CTRL+U),
like in IE.

working correctly on TH cells. It also copies any attribute applied to the

correctly (ignored on some cases).

List Properties dialog has been corrected.
[SF BUG-1272018] The ampersand character can now be
added from the Special Chars dialog.
[SF BUG-1263161] A small fix has been applied to the
sampleposteddata.php file. Thanks to Mike Wallace.
[SF BUG-1241504] The editor now looks also for the
ID of the hidden linked field.

locally when its files are placed in a directory path that contains spaces.
[SF BUG-1279551] [SF BUG-1242105] On IE, some features are dependant
of ActiveX components (secure... distributed with IE itself). Some
security setting could avoid the usage of those components and the editor would
stop working. Now a message is shown, indicating the use the minimum necessary
settings need by the editor to run.
[SF BUG-1298880] Firefox can't handle the STRONG and
EM tags. Those tags are now converted to B and I so it works accordingly.

integration and context menu support. Due to limitations of the browsers, it is
not possible to see the preview of the movie while editing, so a nice
"placeholder" is used instead. *
A "Quick Upload
" option is now available in the link, image and flash dialog windows, so the

settings, in this way a user can use reserved chars on it. For
A minimal browse server sample is now available in ASP. Thanks to Andreas
ATTENTION: For PHP users: The editor was changed and now uses
htmlspecialchars instead of htmlentities
when handling the initial value. It should works well, but please make some
tests before upgrading definitively. If there is any problem just uncomment the
line in the fckeditor.php file (and send me a message!).
The editor is now integrated with ieSpell (http://www.iespell.com)
for Spell Checking. You can configure the download URL in
then fck_config.js file. Thanks to Sanjay Sharma. (ieSpell is free for personal
use but must be paid for commercial use)
Table and table cell dialogs has been
changed. Now you can select the class
you want to be applied. Thanks to Alexander Lezos.

is now available, even if HTML has no support for TAB. Now
when the user presses the TAB key a configurable number of spaces ( )
is added. Take a look at config.TabSpaces on the fck_config.js file. No action

CFM and PHP versions.
A new method is available for PHP users. It's called ReturnFCKeditor.
It works exactly like CreateFCKeditor, but it returns a string with the
for the editor instead of output it (echo). This feature is useful for people
who are working with Smarty Templates or something like that. Thanks to Timothy
Many people have had problems with international characters over
PHP. I had also the same problem. PHP have strange problems
with character encoding. The code hasn't been changed but just saved again with
Western European encoding. Now it works well in my system.
Take a look also at the "default_charset" configuration option at the php.ini
file. It doesn't seem to be an editor's problem but a PHP issue.
The "testsubmit.php" file now strips the "Magic Quotes
" that are automatically added by PHP on form posts.
A new language integration module is available for ASP/Jscript.
Thanks to Dimiter Naydenov.

when the user clicks with the mouse in a toolbar button.
On drag-and-drop operations the data to be inserted in the
editor is now converted to plain text when the "ForcePasteAsPlainText"
configuration is set to true.

image dialog window: when changing the image, no update was done. This bug is
Enhancements to the Word cleaning
feature (Thanks to Karl von Randow).
The Table dialog box
now handles the Style width and height set in the table (Thanks to Roberto
Arruda). There where many problems on prior version when people changed
manually the table's size, dragging the size handles, and then it was not
possible to set a new size using the table dialog box.
For the Image dialog box:
No image is shown in the preview pane if no image has been set.
If no HSpace is set in the image a "-1" value was shown in the dialog box. Now,
nothing is shown if the value is negative.
[SF BUG-739630] Image with link lost the link when
changing its properties. The problem is solved.
Due to some problems in the XHTML cleaning (content duplication when the source

these changes are pending).
Language files has been added for the following languages:
The "Multi Language" system is now available. This version
ships with English and Italian versions completed. Other languages will be
available soon. The editor automatically detects the client language and sets
all labels, tooltips and dialog boxes to it, if available. The auto detection
and the default language can be set in the fck_config.file.
Two files can now be created to isolate customizations code from the original
source code of the editor: fckeditor.config.js and fckeditor.custom.js.
Create these files in the root folder of your web site, if needed. The first
one can be used to add or override configurations set on fck_config.js. The
second one is used for custom actions and behaviors.
A problem with relative links and images like "/test/test.doc" has been solved.
In prior versions, only with XHTML support enabled, the URL was changed to
something like "http://www.mysite.xxx/test/test.doc" (The domain was
automatically added). Now the XHTML cleaning procedure gets the URLs exactly
how they are defined in the editors HTML.

buttons has been disabled.

language to work. Until version 0.9.5 it was working only over English IE
browsers. Now it configures itself using the client's language.
[SF BUG-726137] On version 0.9.5, some commands (special chars, image,
