CKEditor Samples » Producing HTML Compliant Output

This sample shows how to configure CKEditor to output valid HTML 4.01 code. Traditional HTML elements like <b>, <i>, and <font> are used in place of <strong>, <em>, and CSS styles.

To add a CKEditor instance outputting legacy HTML 4.01 code, load the editor using a standard JavaScript call, and define CKEditor features to use the HTML compliant elements and attributes.

A snippet of the configuration code can be seen below; check the source of this page for full definition:

CKEDITOR.replace( 'textarea_id', {
	coreStyles_bold: { element: 'b' },
	coreStyles_italic: { element: 'i' },

	fontSize_style: {
		element: 'font',
		attributes: { 'size': '#(size)' }
