 * Provides the methods to generate the "direct edit" HTML fragments that are inserted

 * 
 * In case you want to implement this, it's a good idea to extend from {@link A_CmsDirectEditProvider}

 * The default direct edit provider used can be configured in <code>opencms-workplace.xml</code> in the

 * {@link CmsDirectEditDefaultProvider}.<p>
