Online WYSIWYG rich text editor tomld2 msg:938628 2:41 am on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0) I am looking for a WYSIWYG rich text editor to use in a form style message posting system. Most WYSIWYG editors on the market are full fledged frontpage style webpage editors. Are there any scaled down editors that would better suit a forum for posting messages (basic text formatting, insert images, alignment, smilies, etc). Don't tables, cells, html previews, etc. Any recommendations?

The FCKeditor gets pretty good reviews. It depends on the output you need and browser compatibility you want I guess. Is that too much? Jimmy Turnip msg:938630 2:13 pm on Nov 10, 2005 (gmt 0)
I've found RichTextEditor very good (www.richtexteditor.org). It's open source so it's totally free and you can easily customize it as much or as little as you like. jplwebdesign msg:938631 2:42 am on Nov 15, 2005 (gmt 0)
This one looks pretty good too

I need a rich text editor with the following characteristics:
small footprint (loads fast)
I only need very simple formatting - b / i / lists / styles <p> and not <div> for paragraphs applies styles to <p>
That, is, if I apply a style, I want it to : <p class="mystyle">
I've been using HtmlArea 2 for some time, but it doesn't work in FireFox :(
I've checked out a number - fckeditor, tinymce, etc - but they all seem like overkill, and most seem to use <div> instead of <p>
added (just noticed this on a different thread):
BTW Firefox and Mozilla do not play nice with WYSIWYG editors and paragraph tags. You'll likely be stuck with separating lines with <br> or with using IE or with tearing your hair out. Is this true?
