TinyMCE is great – multi-platform, easy to implement, and free. Also available as add-ons ($) are a filemanager and imagemanager component that extend the functionality – upload and insert files/images on the fly.

I agree, TinyMCE is great. I’ve even plugged into into our AJAX LMS software called Nuvvo. When you edit text on a curriculum page a TinyMCE renders automatically without having to load the page every time.

I run into a few little snags here and there using Tiny with AJAX but I’m pleasantly surprised with how well it operates. Definitely check it out

TinyMCE is good but, it has a ways to go. My preferred right now is FCKEditor. It’s free, has a built in image manager, loads fast and has a lot of great features. I used it on my site after evaluating TinyMCE (with imagemanager), HTMLArea3 and WYSIWYG Pro. Can’t beat it for the price.

the problem i ran into with most editors is that they destroy the page if i init them into a textarea located in a div, more specificly an absolute positioned div. what i wanted is a popup to edit some text, and post the html code via an ajax request. did anybody manage to pull this off with any editor ? it really screws up the whole “ajaxness” of the page if you load it into an iframe… any suggestions ?

I’ve been looking for a html text editor for ages, and i think this one is the best one for my needs, haven’t tried it yet though. I agree with endre as well. I had a problem with ajax while submitting a form data specially textarea but when i used escape() in ajax, it sorted out the problem. I would actually recommend using some of the ajax frameworks available on the internet. I am writing my website http://www.sentosajaipur.com from scratch and planning to use TinyMCE.
