Idea for an improvement for FitWindow

Description

It would be great if the FitWindow could be adapted to work with the toolbar location set to outside the editor.

To be specific - make the editor fit the window area - but NOT hide the toolbar.

This would allow the toolbar to occupy the maximum space available without wrapping and at the same time you could use CSS to set the width of the FORM (or other container) where the editor body resides.

With this combination, the width of the FORM can be set to match the area where the content will display (in non edit mode) so that the user has an actual WYSIWYG experience during editing. They will be able to see where content will actually wrap and how things will look after the editing is complete.

We are doing this now using the toolbar location feature to set the toolbar to a DIV outside the editor, but we have to use our own Javascript calculations to make the editor body fill the available space without overwriting the toolbar.

It seems as if it should be relatively easy to have a variation of FitWindow that would take into account the height of the toolbar and adjust the editor body offset and height accordingly.

Thanks!

If the toolbar is outside the editor area, then it can be placed anywhere: fixed at the top, hidden, doing some strange behavior with javascript, at the bottom or on one side...

Trying to cover all those situations would be quite complex and there will be always someone that says that it doesn't work for his special case.
