This module explains how to revise your content usingthe Edit-In-Place editor.

Revising with the edit-in-place editor

The Edit-In-Place editor is the default editor on the "Edit" tab. You can insert new text and media objects into a module or modifythe existing contents of a module with this editor. You do not have to be familiar with the CMXML tags to use Edit-In-Place. Itinserts the appropriate CNXML tags for you when you insert a new item in the file. In addition, it has a help text feature thatdescribes the CNXML tags for the items you insert or edit with it.

Editing imported content with edit-in-place

To edit the content of a module that you imported from a Word document, use the following steps:

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
