Text Editor tweaks.

While working with essay/page editor I found out a couple missing features.

! Hard Spaces / Non-breaking spaces in WYSIWYG editor:

Currently the only way to add/view hard spaces in the editor is to edit the code. Most editors have the ability to add hard spaces to the text by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Space. This feature is quite important at least for me, because I justify text in my custom theme I made for a client ( It would be also nice if there was some indication of custom HTML character being present.

! Ctr+Alt+L and Polish Ł character:

Currently Ctrl+Alt+L is used by the editor. Meanwhile Alt-Gr (Ctrl+Alt) is being used for inputing special Polish characters. Alt-Gr+L (Ctrl+Alt+L) is used for inputing Ł character, therefore the binding must be changed, or there must be an option to change it.

! Weird paragraphs:

It's probably not a direct WYSIWYG editor problem, but the inport problem. Currently for some reason, the editor seems to be adding unnecessary paragraphs ('<p></p>'). Here's an essay code sample: and the page output as can be seen on

! Leftovers - It seems that the editor leaves behind some <span> tags setting font-size to 1em (which is pointless)

Custom tags and styles:

It would be nice if I could specify certain tags, and how should they behave in the editor (through for example a stylesheet asset) for clients use. So I wouldn't need to use the code so much.

Alternatively ability to set up a third party text editor for koken use.
