feel of popular text processor applications such as Microsoft Word. From the new
word-like toolbars and contextual menus to the more subtle changes in labels and

Copying Formatting using Format Painter
The Format Painter feature lets you quickly and easily "copy" all the formatting
characteristics from one group of selected text to another. This is handy when you
have a combination of formats on something, like a size, color and style, and want
to apply them to another item, without having to apply them individually.
HTML5 will be the new standard for HTML. Major browsers support many of the new
HTML5 elements and APIs. Rich Text Editor is providing support for various HTML5 elements,
attributes, and values.
