Some users (particularly novice ones) may not realize that their web browser doesn't support the WYSIWIG editor and instead think that TWiki is "broken".
to test to see if the user's browser is known to support the WYSYWYG editor -- currently, this includes Firefox 1.5 and later and Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 and later (this list can be expanded once WYSYWYG support in Opera, Safari, and other web browsers starts to work properly).
This was originally reported in TWiki:Codev.DisableWYSIWYGforUnsupportedBrowsers
, but moved here at the suggestion of TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie
. The patch has been updated to include more explanatory comments.
