Item8930: Use JQuery to fetch init variable

Priority: Normal
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.1.0
Target Release: minor
Applies To: Extension
Component: TinyMCEPlugin
Reported By: PaulHarvey
Waiting For: Main.PaulHarvey, Main.ArthurClemens
Last Change By: KennethLavrsen
It seems that for whatever reason, our foswiki_tiny_src that duplicates the foswiki object implemented in JQueryPlugin is failing on IE6 browsers under some circumstances (NatSkin at least; too much <head> noise?).

It's high time we deleted that code and used the JQueryPlugin conventions.

ArthurClemens reported on IRC that IE6 has got a hard limit of around 25 lines starting from the top of the html page to read meta tags. Is there any reference about this to read up?

-- MichaelDaum - 20 Apr 2010

If that was the case, then the JQueryPlugin foswiki object wouldn't be populated, would it?

Or perhaps jQuery itself has a work-around for this limit.

Not lines, but <style> and <script> tags.

-- ArthurClemens - 20 Apr 2010 may be relevant

I confirm that this patched version fixes the problem with ie6. At least for our version. Thanks to PaulHarvey

-- IngoWolf - 12 May 2010

Closing, although the code checked in against this task is no longer relevant since the JQueryPlugin changes for 1.1
