      Hi,

      hoping this group can help point me in the right direction on a feature I am hoping is supported by the YUI Rich Text Editor.

      I was wondering if it is possible to load in custom css files and have the text editor load in the styles as a drop down selection for users to apply to the input text.

      For example, specify a css file that has a tag (called 'style1') that sets a specific style to the text, and a tag (called 'style2') that sets a text decoration (these are fairly basic examples). The wysiwyg tools then provide a drop down of these styles for the user to apply to whatever text they wish to input.

      Is something like this possible with this editor and if so can anyone provide me with information on how to achieve this.

      Thanks for your help.

            Hi Dav,

            thanks for pointing me at the example, that is a great help.

            I wonder however, how and if it would be possible to work custom css tags into this, looking at your example, it works well for re-styling generic tags such as <body> or <p> etc, but would it be possible to get it to work with a tag for example:

            <div class=newStyle> and how would I go about that? or would that require a 'source' editor tab and the user inputting the styling information manually.

            My goal is to basically be able to style as much of a page as possible just through the rich text editor, rather than just style the text and have the page styles already built in.

            Hope I am making sense and not just confusing the issue.

            That would be similar to the way this example works: http://blog.davglass.com/files/yui/editor40/ ... -- Dav Glass davglass@gmail.com blog.davglass.com +
