Functionality differences compared to traditional HTML/CSS sites

I figured the most interesting part of this project will be seeing the pros/cons/differences between this approach and your typical HTML/CSS driven site.

If you want to post differences as you come across them we can try and build up a list. If you have an actual bug or improvement request, then that should be in the Issue Tracker section. I'm mostly curious in defining what the current limits are as compared to a typical blogging system so that people can guage whether this platform is right for them (myself included). It should be obvious there are tons of possible functionality improvements over HTML/CSS, so this is in no ways a topic to argue pros/cons between the two.

Current differences:

  • no browser context menu (used for various shortcuts - some of which may still be accessible by other means - and 3rd party plugins/interactions)
    • no way to copy image links / steal images
  • browser compatibility/support for non-Silverlight platforms/devices
