I was curious what would happen if I use an input method. I used intentions-demo with the standard Japanese input method on OS X 10.10 to type “nihongo”, which first converts to “にほんご” and then to “日本語”.

In Safari 8 and Chrome 38, text input worked fine, but I didn’t see any events.

In Firefox 32, text input also worked, but there was only a single beforeInput/insertText event for the very first keystroke, nothing for the remainder.

What is the intended behavior?

Norbert

The top of the page is an editable region, and there is a log below it that shows which events have been fired. These are very simple pages, but I think they capture the spirit of the idea. You can preventDefault these Custom events, as shown in the CEcursor demo. I will soon add more details. Currently hooked up are the English keyboard shortcuts on Windows for select-all, shift-right arrow, bold, italic, underline, undo, redo, and typing lowercase English letters. Please play around with them and let me know what you think.
