comment What are the pros (and cons) of using “Sign in with Twitter/Facebook” for a new website?
@PeterLeppert: they've heard of Google, Yahoo! and the BBC, but they're less likely to be aware that you can be a member of those things (and they definitely haven't heard of OpenID).

@MichaelT: yup, those were the chapters I looked at. They specifically deal with how to store the elements of a document as objects, and how to design their APIs so that they can render themselves. It doesn't discuss how to map the user's caret position/text selection to the document representation.

@MichaelT: it does indeed, that was my first thought too. I couldn't find any examples in it related to this particular question, although I should take another look.
