AjaxWordPro: a multi-user web-based editor
- Student: Kausalya Madhusudhanan (2008).
Create a text editor that is accessible solely through the web that allows
multiple users to simultaneously edit the same document, keeping each user aware
of the work done by others, and locking regions of the document to prevent
capturing important key-presses and handling asynchronous (AJAX) communication
with the server. The server uses PHP and a mySQL database.
