First introduced by Internet Explorer, the proprietary contenteditable attribute is
supported by most browsers today. HTML5 standardizes the use of this attribute globally
on all elements. The basic sense of the attribute is that if you set it to true, the browser
should allow you to modify the text directly when you click the element:
<p contenteditable="true"> This paragraph of text is editable. Click it
and you will see. Of course there is no sense of saving it with code to
transmit the information to the server. This paragraph of text is editable.
Click it and you will see. Of course there is no sense of saving it with
code to transmit the information to the server. </p>
The browser may or may not present a style change to show you are in “edit mode.”
No style change
contentEditable property for the element. For example, the following changes this
property and updates the class name to reflect a style change when in edit mode.
onblur="this.contentEditable=false;this.className='';"> This paragraph
uses some simple script to be editable. Double-click the text to
begin editing. </p>
