Really nice work!

However the browser/editor has few glitches:
1) Bug I often encounter - devs think that everyone that everyone has
default colours black foreground and white background, so they set only
background/foreground and people like me see white text on white
background or black text on black background.
2) Diacritics are not working.

Best regards,
