Description (last modified by Marek Lewandowski)

In all browser except Firefox there's a poor selection handling for tables inside of contenteditable element. To enhance user experience when it comes to working with tables we need to provide a custom selection handling.

Selection highlighting

We need to provide a nice highlighting for selected table parts across all the browsers. That would be accomplished by changing background of every currently selected cell, so that user has clear understanding what cells are selected.

Of course the selection has to be customizable with CSS.

More flexible selection

We want to allow for more flexible table selection. Currently (except Firefox) it's only possible to make a continuous selection, containing all subsequent cells.

We'd like to improve it in a way that the user is able to make rectangular selection in a table. This also means that it would be possible to select just a single column or row of a table.

We also need to provide integration with existing features for this kind of a selection.
