Make TextViewer editable. Now it's possible to make changes in live-edit mode using double-click to start editing. Would be better to have its content editable like in classic IDEs.

Here is an overview of the plan to accomplish this:

1) Migrate from TABLE to DIV.

2) Implement editing (aka IDE) via HTML5's contentEditable.

3) Add new UI elements to support the IDE functionality (e.g. indicator that the source code has been changed, Save and Revert buttons and etc.).

4) Support the changes on the backend side, remove Live Editing in favor of the IDE.

5) Rename TextViewer to TextEditor.
