Sets whether the web viewer allows the user to edit its HTML document.
You can change the receiver's document programmatically regardless of this setting. By default a WebView object is not editable.
Normally, an HTML document is not editable unless the elements within the document are editable. This method provides a low-level way to make the contents of a WebView object editable without altering the document or DOM structure.


Turn editing on for a webviewer:

Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS( "WebView.SetEditable"; "web"; 1 ) ]
