Formatting in editor doesn't match formatting displayed on page

To repro:

1. Edit the content of an HTML Content module.
2. In the editor, select some text and then select, for example, "Title H3" from the Style drop-down. The text is diplayed as bold black in the editor.
3. Update and view the content outside the editor.  The text is now non-bold and dark-red.

Problem is that the site's stylesheet is not used as the stylesheet by FCKEditor's editor area.  I think the fix is to change Web/*Edit.aspx.cs to set fckInstance.Config["EditorAreaCSS"] to the URL for site stylesheet.  Sorry I can't provide a detailed patch.  It's not immediately clear to me how to determine the URL for the site stylesheet, and since I can't build mojoportal on Linux at the moment, I can't really test any proposed code changes.

BTW, it doesn't look like FCKEditor provides a way to associate multiple stylesheets to the editor area, so you might need to add the contents of fck_editorarea.css to the included stylesheets (eg mojo1.css).

Re: Formatting in editor doesn't match formatting displayed on page

I'll look into it, also the final version of FCKeditor 2.0 is due for release on 7/15/2005 so I plan to upgrade when that comes out. Currently we have  RC1.

Re: Formatting in editor doesn't match formatting displayed on page

Your suggested fix does seem to work. I've committed it to svn.

I've been naming the stylesheet that corresponds to skin to match the skin name like
skin mojo1.ascx
style mojo1.css

and now this will be required so that the correct stylesheet name can be determined at runtime since it it not stored in the db or anywhere else.

I don't see that as a problem but noting it here since it was just a convention before and now it is a requirement.

The release of the new FCKeditor has been delayed till 7/18/2005 so I won't be able to work on that this weekend as I had planned.
