Impossible to write someting on a field

I have build a sort of split view for one of my android applications.
I have made an activity which is a container of a listview and a
framelayout. I use the listview for a menu and in my framelayout, I
load views of different activities. I have read the source code of the
TabHost for building this system.

TabHost source code : ;a=blob;f=core/java/android/widget/

Activities that I load in my framelayout could contain a webview.

The system work pretty well but I have a big issue. When I click on a
field in a webview, the soft keyboard doesn't appear and typing on the
physical keyboard has no affect.

I have made many many researches and I found nothing :'( I really
appreciate if somebody could give me an idea for solving this issue.

1. Internal Attachments in Gmail App

After surfing through anything I could find in the Developer groups
and Google, I cannot find a solid, definitive answer to this question:

Is it possible to programmatically add attachments from internal
memory to emails in the Gmail app?

With the following snippet of code, I take the predefined String
"message" and attempt to write a file into internal memory through
FileStreamOutput and then attach this new file to an email:

FileOutputStream fos;
                                try { //Write our string into internal memory 
to get a file
                                        fos = this.openFileOutput(fileName, 
                                } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
                                } catch (IOException e) {
                                //Get that file back from internal and attach

Another post in this group claimed that this code had worked fine.
However, when looking through my device's log in DDMS (Devlik Debug
Monitor) I see the following error output from the Gmail app:

file:// attachment paths must point to file:///sdcard. Ignoring
attachment file:///data/data/mypackage/mydata.txt

This leads me to believe it is impossible to attach to an email from
internal memory. However, the previous post had given me hope that
there may be a solution. And furthermore, when the email is finally
brought up, the file name representing the file from internal memory
shows up on the attachment bar as though the file is actually
attached. However, when the email is sent out, the attachment no
longer appears in the email, indicating that it was never attached at

Attaching a file from external memory was quite simple. This on the
other hand has been unnerving. Any ideas?
