How timely this post is...at SC06 I was just having a discussion with someone (who would like to remain nameless) about this very topic...John, that's 1 down :-)

Cross-browser authoring

One of the most popular blog entries was the web browser compatibility one where folks were very vocal about the lack of authoring support on non-IE browsers. I'm proud to say that Telerik is announcing that they will support cross-browser authoring with an integrated rich text editor that will be available for all customers licensed for Office SharePoint Server at no additional cost. According to Telerik, you can use the rich text editor in the following scenarios:
  • rich-text filed control in SharePoint forms (in Lists, etc.) 
  • rich-text editor WebPart 
  • Web Content Management scenario

You can read more about it in the press release.

They are going to launch a limited beta program in early December and plan to release final bits by end of calendar year. There should be a nomination form linked from http://www.telerik.com/sharepoint shortly.
