I just want to write what a good experience I've had recently with HTMLArea, the WYWSIWYG HTML editor that replaces textarea elements in your web page. This thing is so easy to use and configure. I was able to drop it in in less than 15 minutes including unpacking the .zip and choosing which buttons I wanted to appear. I also tried FCKEditor, but it doesn't allow the setting of text colors, which I felt was a requirement. I understand that <font> is deprecated and I should use styles, but these WYSIWYG controls just don't work well for that paradigm, IMHO. The users they are targeted at understand Word, not HTML/CSS.
