Description Gabriel Wicke 2013-09-04 23:42:22 UTC
As mentioned in our roadmap [1], we would like to use Parsoid HTML+RDFa for
regular page views too.

This has several potential advantages:

1) It can speed up visual editing by eliminating the need to re-load content
for editing. We can use a hash to detect modifications by gadgets, or shadow the innerHTML on page load.

2) It can enable copying content between pages. See bug 52091 and bug

To make this possible at a large scale, the size of compressed Parsoid HTML
needs to be closer to that of the PHP parser. Site-specific CSS rules for the
content need to be adjusted to work on Parsoid's more semantic HTML structures.
