Emacs for filling more than forms input?

Hi, I just published a blog about how I jump from Emacs to Nyxt and back for my (still experimental) workflow.

https://ag91.github.io/blog/2021/06/22/back-to-emacs-while-in-nyxt-how-to-edit-the-web-in-a-lispy-editor/

I noticed that only input in html forms allow Emacs as editor: any chance somebody knows why that limitation? Is just a matter to increment the cases here or there was some underlying issue? nyxt/external-editor.lisp at master · atlas-engineer/nyxt · GitHub

So awesome!!!

Which HTML element would you need to edit with an external editor? We’ve put INPUT and TEXTAREA because this was a quick and dirty implementation, but now that you mention it, we should polish it with a list of all editable HTML elements.

I’ve opened an issue about it: Allow external editor in any HTML editable element · Issue #1565 · atlas-engineer/nyxt · GitHub

Thanks for opening the issue! An example of somewhere where it does not work is: Tryit Editor v3.6
