I am working with a large CRM application that uses a lot of standard HTML 5 functions. Works fine in IE9+ and Chrome 47 (current)

There is a lot of use of contenteditable on all text fields, this provides multi-line edit and also formatted edit on the fields that need it.

When I spin up the pplication in iPad simulator, regardless of version, the comtent editable fields do not allow edit, even though I understand from forums that iPad supports this as of iOS v5.

Any thoughts?

    I guess I should add some other stuff.

    Link above fails in iPad Simulator-- i.e. the left hand should be editable.

    I am running Windows 7, 64bit, also currently using VS2012, though I do not think that relevant in this issue.
