Description Mark Martin 2007-12-18 05:07:01 UTC
Link formatting controls for 
Should be made available to users/editors while editing a page without requiring an administrator to load CSS files on the server.  The URL will take you to a more detailed description/sample of the problem and why this is a feature request versus a template request.  It is ONLY for presentation control, not any other types of CSS control -- color, decoration, etc...
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-12-18 18:44:08 UTC
I believe there is no way to do this, prior to CSS3, without allowing per-page <style> tags (possibly very limited) to be added.  Not sure if that's worth the effort.
Comment 2 Mark Martin 2007-12-18 19:20:17 UTC
There actually are a couple extensions that allow for fairly full CSS use on pages but that would be a tad 'dangerous' to expose.

These 3 allow for tags to be used that will append the embedded script to the <head> or <body> portions of a page.  Now if they can allow full control (again, not desired) then a limited form for just link controls should be possible using a function/template driven format.
Comment 3 Mark Martin 2007-12-18 22:43:46 UTC
I updated the link document with additional suggestions on syntax, form and function that should better clarify what I am thinking about as far as a solution goes.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2007-12-19 00:00:17 UTC
As a matter of course, fancy coloring should be kept to a minimum. Setting up the common style sheets is much preferred.
