This protocol is adopted by document representation classes that handle specific MIME types.

WebDocumentSearching

WebDocumentSearching is an optional protocol for document view objects that support searching. Classes that adopt this protocol should also adopt WebDocumentView and inherit from NSView.

WebDocumentText

WebDocumentText is an optional protocol for document view objects that display text. This protocol defines methods for accessing document content as strings, and methods for text selection. Classes that adopt this protocol should also adopt WebDocumentView and inherit from NSView.

Deprecated
WebDocumentView

This protocol is adopted by the document view of a WebFrameView. You can extend WebKit to support additional MIME types by implementing your own document view and document representation classes to render data for specific MIME types. You register those classes using the WebFrame registerViewClass:representationClass:forMIMEType: method. Classes that adopt this protocol are expected to be subclasses of NSView.
