Integrating a WYSIWYG editor into homemade CMS

Hi,

How easy is it to integrate a WYSIWYG editor like FCKeditor into a simple form-based CMS?

I thought about writing a PHP script that replaces [B][/B], [I][/I] etc. with their respective HTML tags, but thought there must be an easy (opensource/free?) way of doing this. Surely it would be javascript-based as well?

Any ideas?

Cheers

it depends on your cms and especially if you support special tags in the content.
there tends to be browser support issue with most i've tried.
i've had the best results with tinymce.
i haven't tried fckedit in a while.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Are you talking about implementing it into a CMS such as Joomla or Drupal or using it in general on form submissions as part of a (very) simple homemade CMS?

What I'd like to do is use it on a form I create to insert HTML code into a MySQL database so that non-tech people can easily update pages.
