I'm working on an application that needs to behave like Apple Mail when
composing a reply: if the user types Return inside the quoted message, the
quoted content is broken in two parts, the cursor is inserted in-between and
any character typed by the user is no longer part of the quoted content.

To implement this behavior, Apple Mail currently uses a category implemented in
WebView, called WebViewEditingInMail, that defines 4 methods, one of which is
_insertNewlineInQuotedContent which calls

The problem is that WebViewEditingInMail is a private interface, part of

Could you please make this interface public? Other editor applications might
benefit from it too.

Note: the method '_insertNewlineInQuotedContent' expects the quoted content to
be within a BLOCKQUOTE with TYPE="cite". While the developers of a generic
editor might appreciate being able to specify which elements should or should
not be broken on the user typing Return, I could very much live with this
limitation - no problem.
