Editor: Midas - relative DIV are immovable


(Core :: DOM: Editor, defect)

Not set





(Reporter: osavill, Unassigned)


Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040218

Inserting a position:relative DIV element in to a designMode="on" IFRAME
( results in an immovable element. This
is the same in IE, so perhaps it is not possible, but it would be extremely nice.

(I have taken the demo code and produced a version that runs in IE and Mozilla
with the minimum of browser dependant code, and that is what I am running these
observations against. Probably someone with a deeper understanding of the
respective DOMs would get even less browser dependant code.)
