As mentioned in our roadmap , we would like to use Parsoid HTML+RDFa for regular page views too.
This has several potential advantage:
- It can speed up visual editing by eliminating the need to re-load content for editing. We can use a hash to detect modifications by gadgets.
- It make it possible to copy content between pages. See bug 52091 and bug 52936.
To make this possible at a large scale, the size of compressed Parsoid HTML needs to be closer to that of the PHP parser. Site-specific CSS rules for the content need to be adjusted to work on Parsoid's more semantic HTML structures.
