I have just learned that since 1.0.4 Internet Explorer users can no longer resize the edit window or change font between fixed and proportional.

The IE says something about illegal method

This is a release blocker as it has a dramatic daily impact on users

It turned out to be the META with the name "TOPIC" that clashed with the text area named "topic". Ie seems to not care for the sensitivity and goofs up.

Olivier and I agree that we did not dare renaming the text area name from topic to something else because extensions proving special editing may depend on it.

On the other hand the META was only picked up by the PatternSkin javascript but we could not find anywhere it was used


When you are back Arthur feel free to call it something else but for 1.0.5 we needed a solution and 1.0.5 has to go out on the 25th and an internal beta tonight
