Text fields have a danger of more conflicts than other parts of the page. Instead of just sending wiping changes (as now) we could use operational transformations (basically sending commands back and forth, so the intention of both writers is preserved as best as possible).

This library could be useful: https://github.com/josephg/ShareJS (already uses Socket.IO)
Also: http://code.google.com/p/google-mobwrite/
