About RichText and fidelity in general

From eknori.

with Nomad just around the corner, LS and also richtext becomes important again. Richtext methods have not been upgraded or enhanced for a long time. I do not make an educated guess, why.

you should hire Ben Langhinrichs and use his knowledge about richtext and also fidelity to make Notes/Domino great again. 

Better, acquire Ben‘s company and integrate his awesome work into the product.

    I don't know about Ben's work but actually, there is a very very big problem around this notes rich text..

    And I agree with you, IBM should invest a lot in this point

    All lotus developper (for notes client app) have done nightmare about this point "rich text fidelity notes/web" and "legacy notesrichtext content" that we can't easily migrate to html5. It makes me want to abandon Lotus just because of this point.. We are stuck with notes legacy apps.. I think this is also the case for many companies who feel like IBM just emprisoned them with this notes richtext and now don't want to here about Domino.

    For what it is worth, one of the major reasons Ulrich (eknori) suggests my products is because they DO allow high fidelity round-trip conversion between Notes rich text and HTML5. We do more than that at Genii Software, but converting to and from rich text to other formats is the reason for this idea being suggested.
