12:34 AM - Windows JJ Client future?
I've been trying to hack my way around the problem of generating rich html that works correctly for some time. The current jj client doesn't even do links! Its rather lame really. If I wish to continue with just journal it needs to become a good service/product.
I've found a HTML editor control that uses the MSHTML controls and provides a partial wrapper for it. I could create a new client using that code as a starting point. Is it worth it? I don't know. It would introduce some new security concerns into JJ. The client might get hit with the same nightmare of attacks IE faces all the time. It might also limit me to win32 where I couldn't do native builds. I'm not sure, but I do have to use interop as it is for music anyway.
The advantage would be that all posts would be in HTML from the windows client and it would save html instead of rtf.
I've also got a problem in that the code was written for .NET 1.x and there are a few porting issues. I've been working on that problem a bit.
