Mozilla really needs an API for embedding and manipulating an HTML/text editor in a webpage. Perhaps something similar to Micro$ofts's MSHTML API. <evangelist spam> This is critical if you want web application developers to develop their apps with Mozilla-compatibility. Just get on the mozilla DOM newsgroup sometime and count how many web app developers are complaining about this "missing feature". As much as I hate to admit it, Microsoft is way ahead of Mozilla in the dynamic content arena. I realize Mozilla has better support for Range objects and DOM2 stuff, but Microsoft's APIs are much easier to use (and in many cases, more powerful). If Mozilla could implement an easy way of embedding Editor into a webpage, it would definitely help to close the gap with Explorer. Otherwise the next generation of the web really will be "IE-only". </evangelist spam>
-> Editor Probably a dupe since this has been wanted in embedding for some time.
