As Mark Rowe noted in the comments for Bug 10165, the best approach  
to getting the rich text/wysiwyg editor used by VOX to work with  
WebKit is to file individual bugs for specific bugs, then make these  
new bugs depend on Bug 10165.  The other helpful thing to do is to  
reduce each of these isolated bugs to a test case that reproduces the  
original problem.

In general, there have been a large number of fixes for other rich  
text editors for WebKit this year, and many times a fix for one will  
fix others as well.  That means that VOX's editor may be (much?)  
closer to working now than when Bug 10165 was originally reported.
