463 new-lines and quotes. That dramatically improves readability of multi-line
464 strings.
465 * Same goes for editing of JSON string values. When a change to a field value is
466 submitted, and the value is not valid JSON it is assumed to be a string. This
467 improves editing of multi-line strings a lot.
468 * Hitting tab in textareas no longer moves focus to the next form field, but simply
469 inserts a tab character at the current caret position.
