Use Parsoid HTML for read-only views too
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

As mentioned in our roadmap [1], we would like to use Parsoid HTML+RDFa for regular page views too.

This has several potential advantage:

  1. 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.
  1. 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.
