Really, I've looked and there's a huge lack of good free WYSIWYG editors so this one's a welcome addition. There's just a couple things that need to be fixed:

- the button images are missing from the distribution. I've made a bunch of them them myself but they really should be included.
- no Mozilla (Firebird) support. Comes up with a few Javascript errors.

Yahh, Mozilla' support-- that's problem. Now only IE suppoorted.
I read about modas, but this technology only for mozilla. What about Opera, Concuier etc.?
Any ideas?

Regarding images: download full class archive.

Not sure. If the makers of Javascript intepreters made it all inconsistent then so much is going to be difficult. I got most of it working in Mozilla with only minor changes but at the cost of no longer working in IE. Having a different js for each browser is a pain. Really, someone should put the IE and the old Netscape teams in a room with some wiffle bats and let them have it out until there's a real winner. Then we can have some consistency.

But really, the Wysarea component has a chance to really change how we enter text in a web page. Even the window I am typing in right now can benefit from it. Has anybody ever looked at how Google and Hotmail solve this?

I've seen in blogger a textarea where you could insert images, font styles like bold, italic, underline, etc... It worked fine in Mozilla, I suppose they worked hard to make different JS versions for the most popular browsers. ..

Still, this class is great for closed applications, if you develop a custom web app for some customer that you know uses IE at work.
