#2148: Handful typos reporting scheme for Boost web site

 I've seen an interesting functionality on some web sites and suppose that
 it could be worth adding to the Boost web site.

 The main idea is to add some JavaScript which would create a bug/typo-
 handling form on pressing some key combination. This form should reflect
 the text highlighted at the moment of pressing the key combination.

 Unfortunately I've got a few examples of sites with this feature (and
 Google doesn't help). In fact at this moment I could point out only one
 implementation of this. Although getting things worse this site is
 Russian. But anyway here it is: http://www.intuit.ru/

 At the bottom of each page you can see a phrase: “Внимание! Если Ð’Ñ‹
 ÑƒÐ²Ð¸Ð´Ð¸Ñ‚е ошибку на нашем сайте, выделите её и нажмите Ctrl+Enter.” It
 means: “Attention! If you see an error (a typo) on our site, highlight it
 and press Ctrl+Enter.” Unfortunately it works only for registered users
 (but the registration is free), though I recall the time when it was
 freely available.

 I'm not a web-programmer and probably can't implement this functionality
 from scratch. But it could be easily noted, that the implementation on
 intuit.ru is like this. There is a hidden (in fact very small) iframe on
 the standard page footer with link to www.intuit.ru/content-
 operation/error.xhtml which holds quite short JavaScript and links with
 other .js-file (www.intuit.ru/content-operation/default.js) with a little
 bit longer definition of prototype for contentOperation form and another
 .js-file for checking authorization.

 Maybe in the case of Boost site such JavaScript should redirect to the
 Trac system automatically filling some fields of the ticket-form.
