Integrating a good text editor on a jobsite

Does anyone know of a good text editor you can use on a website - which allows users to input free text, and the owner of the website to control which HTML elements the user can use?

I'm currently using TinyMCE - but wondering if anyone has any experience of something better? TinyMCE has problems with pasting in, line breaks etc, and generally doesn't seem too reliable

Thanks!

Might check out this discussion: [webmasterworld.com...] regarding the FCKeditor.

Thanks Tangor - the age old problem of CSS interfering with it! I'm assuming that if the CSS was set up properly as with the likes of Wordpress etc then we wouldn't have the problems.. right?

I was about to post a similar question and found this one as the most recent. Interesting timing.

Currently I'm using FCK Editor. I had a developer set it up for me so I may not understand all the settings correctly.

I wanted to ask about other, more user friendly editors because of common issues such as when a visitor clicks at the end of a sentence, it may create a new span tag or the character(s) may end up inside or outside the current tag(s) used for that sentence.

I use FCK to allow companies to create their own advertising page and It seems that many people aren't creating one because of challenges with the editor.

Is FCK as user friendly as anything else in this regard? I plan on building some templates that the users can select from but I'm afraid that it won't really address this issue.

Do people really type in their resume on job sites? If a site doesn't offer copy/paste or upload I won't spend my time typing it all in.

Might be something you want to try and track before spending a lot of time on something like this.

Why else would you need an editor?

For a job listing? Make a template file so your job listings all look the same style wise.

There's many uses for editors. That's why there's a market for them(?) Not everything fits in a template.

We use it so customers can create their own web pages for advertising. The templates that we need are pre-made web pages so people don't have to know how to write a web page.

I hope my question doesn't get lost in this thread. Does anyone know of a more user friendly editor?
