Description Gregor J. Rothfuss 2005-01-31 17:39:23 UTC
it's a long-standing request to be able to use addional xml elements in kupu.
this allows to combine the cross-browser features of kupu with a xhtml+ schema

this now seems possible. i have copied a conversation from the kupu IRC channel

gregor	i was wondering.. does kupu still strip out unknown xml tags?
guido_w	gregor: we have a very nice new, configurable filter now, so if you want
to it won't...
guido_w	however i can't guarantee editability (?) of the document if you put in
non-HTML tags
guido_w	gregor: i did write a cool extension for some customer of ours, which
allows using 'replacement elements' for non-HTML elements
guido_w	you will have to do the actual replacing on the server, but it does
allow you to *manage* non-HTML structures from a Kupu tool, if you create an
element with that tool it will generate some special HTML markup with values set
as attributes
guido_w	and it's all configurable from XML, so you can add new forms,
validations and replacement structures from XML
guido_w	gregor: svn co http://codespeak.net/svn/kupu/tools/genericelements/ i think
gregor	thanks for the info. i will replicate it to the lenya mailing list as it
is a FAQ :)

we should improve the kupu integration to use these features. this means
shipping with support for lenya:meta, and making it easy to add your own
handlers for other xml elements.

This would allow XDoc editing within kupu BTW.

Kupu will not be supported in future versions.
