Description Anders Carlsson 2006-05-09 11:03:29 PDT
Currently, the code that handles showing text files is in WebKit and uses an NSTextView. This should be in WebCore instead

I'm not sure about whether unsupportedTextMIMETypes should be moved to WebCore...

+    PassRefPtr<TextDocument> createTextDocument(FrameView* v = 0);

No need for the "v" there.

Why create separate text nodes for each piece of data written? Maybe instead we should create just one large text node.

Why create a "pre" element? Couldn't we just put the text into the body and use CSS to style as we like?

+TextDocument::TextDocument(DOMImplementation *_implementation, FrameView *v)

Please put * next to the type name. Please don't use an underscore prefix in new code.

I do think the list of unsupported text MIME types should go into WebCore.

This looks ready to go to me. r=me

We also should have some test cases of text handling.  These shoudl be possible with the httpd testing mechanisms.
Comment 4 Anders Carlsson 2006-05-09 12:01:16 PDT
I went ahead and committed this. I'm looking at adding test cases now.
