In genealogy web apps, I kind of like consolidating name fields into a single textbox. Simpler is better. But then you run into the problem of distinguishing the surname from the rest of the name — because of surnames like “Gutierrez Sanchez,” you can’t just assume the surname is the last word in the string.
When you click on the name, it becomes editable:
How it works
Basically, you give it an
input.namebox element and it creates a corresponding
div tag for displaying the highlighted surname. It then flips back and forth between the
input and the
div, parsing the name field and changing the highlight appropriately.
