Hi all,

I've filed a new JIRA request concerning the HTML Editor control. Please
take a look <http://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-21268> and make
contributions. Here it is:

I dear say that everyone who's used the HTML Editor control will agree that
it is not really adequate for serious use. So, I propose several
enhancements to the API:

1) Make HtmlText an ObservableValue - CRUCIAL.
2) Allow toolbar customization. At minimum, this should include
disabling/enabling or hiding/showing available controls.
3) Provide a mechanism to limit the number (and type) of available fonts.
This is essential for web content production (web-safe fonts are still
considered a good design practice, but also for the theme-specific fonts),
and when preparing content for external components, like JasperReports.
4) Allow selecting default font from code.


P.S. Sorry if this is a double message, I've sent a first one from
non-registered e-mail address, so I'm not sure it's sent.
