Kevin from Noovo Communications in Korea sent in an interesting link to their Ajax-based webpage editor. I confess, I haven’t kept up with the on-line webpage editor space, so I have no idea how impressive this is relative to other such sites.
However, I was intrigued by their attempt at implementing the Microsoft Office 2007 “Ribbon”, Microsoft’s attempt at replacing that enshrined-and-well-respected UI paradigm, the pull-down menu, along with its younger brother, the toolbar.
Here’s the original:

If you play around with it, you’ll see that the Ajax version has some of the Ribbon’s pull-down behaviors, too.Noovo also has a blog announcing their creation, though they don’t make particular mention of their Ribbon clone.
