Our site (http://www.vsfe.org) runs on a TWiki 4.2.0 installation that uses NatSkin. Editing a page using TinyMCE works fine in Firefox, but in Internet Explorer the line with Save/Preview/Add form buttons is missing. IE reports that there is an error on the page (line 25, character 3), and that focus cannot be shifted to an invisible or disabled element. The error seem to refer to this bit of code (lines 21-31):

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {

txtarea = document.EditForm.text; // tell natedit where our textarea is

$(".natMainContents .twikiTable, .natMainContents .mwTable")
.not($(".twikiTable .twikiTable, .mwTable .mwTable", this))
.wrap("<div class='overflow'></div>");

I'm not sure if this is also causing the display problems because I'm not really familiar with JavaScript and CSS. But as most people are using IE, it is important for me to get this working again. I've tested it on IE 6.0.2800 SP 1 (Windows XP). It looks like the same problem described by JenniferRoss on TWiki:Plugins/NatSkinDev .

This workaround from TWiki:Main/MarkVanHeeswijk on TWiki:Plugins/NatEditContribDev seems to solve the problem:

Editing the template edittoolbar.word.natedit.tmpl and remove class natEditHiddenToolBar from natEditToolBar.
