The editors within the Squeak environment are a lot more advanced than any
in a web browser's text editing form... if you have access to the image
that hosts your Seaside setup, you might be better served adding and
editing methods in the Squeak environment itself.


They are very much the same but a lot more advanced.

(Of course, that means getting familiar with the Squeak environment, if
you are not already.  That can be a beast in itself, but it's such a
rewarding battle...)
