Thanks! I saw this example before. There is the same problem as I met.
If you clear editing area and type something, you will got some HTML
code like:


<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

<title>HTML Editor Demo</title>

</head><body style="word-wrap: break-word; -webkit-nbsp-mode: space;
-webkit-line-break: after-white-space; ">hey</body></html>

in which I just write hey and I want to get


as simple.

Thank you again!
