IE4/5 has the concept of behaviors that you could attach any piece of
HTML+script to a tag/Element. It was a good feature which did not get
too popular, as most developers said they wanted HTML4+CSS1+DOM done

With IE5.5 support for the contenteditable Attribute, which lets you
make a lot of HTML elements editable, it should be possible to
integrate behaviors with  this to create a good HTML/XML editor.
(The work done with the contenteditable Attribute is a real
innovation, BTW)

While this always seemed technical feasible to me, no one wanted to
touch this kind of project. There were on and off conversations about
creating a good editor on XML-Dev and other places, but they always
went nowhere. So, it's nice to see the Zope/Mozilla integration
project making some good progress in this direction.
