html editor recommendations?

JJ
I am/was using FCKeditor to allow users to submit HTML, however I am coming
accross a serious bug which removes all style code blocks when a user
submits html using Firefox 2.0.x .

So, can anyone recommend any other html editors than can easily be used on a
asp.net 2.0 website (and are free/opensource).

Thanks,

JJ

Hi Mark,

I saw that one. I think maybe my expectations are wrong...

Are these editors capable of editing a full html document with (for example)
a <stylecode block in the header?

When I try pasting a full html document with a header (including a style
block), a body, and a footer, the editors convert the whole lot to a table,
ignoring and deleting the entire style block.

Is it perhaps that these editors are only designed to format small chunks of
HTML and won't do an entire page?

Thanks in advance,
JJ

Hmm - I'll admit to not having tried to use FreeTextBox to edit an entire
page, but I think if that is what you require, then maybe you need something
like SharePoint...

Exactly. You can't build a whole page with freetextbox *or* FCK.

I do hope there's another solution - its too late to adopt sharepoint in
this case.

Actually it does work ok with FCK - but only in IE. Firefox somehow acts
completely differently.
Do you know of any editors that will do the header section as well in both
browsers?

re:

IE is very lenient when it comes to ignoring superfluous html tags.

Think of it this way :

When you use an online editor, what you edit is meant to be embedded in an html page.
If you include double html/head/body tags, would you expect a browser to honor them ?

I wouldn't.

try posting this question in an FCKeditor forum, you may have better luck

That looks like a seriously good component. It worked with full page html in
both IE and Firefox. Its a shame its not a (free) opensource component
though - I guess I can't have it all can I...(!)

Check out Macromedia's HomeSite. I used that way back for HTML coding and
now it has support of .aspx file extensions.

It looks free to me. If it's as good as it looks, why do you need open
source? There's no need to change it.

Depends what you want. I regularly get "script unresponsive" errors with
FTB, not to mention the appalling rubbish HTML that it generates. Add to
that the complete lack of any decent documentation and no support and,
well, I guess there's little to recommend it!

Just my 2c. I am in no way affiliated with FTB, just a frustrated
developer who has wasted too much time trying to get it work.

Hi Alan,

I'd presumed the downloads were somehow time limited as the costs are listed
next to each component (including the html editor).
Does it say it is free to use somewhere?

Thanks,

JJ

My mistake. I looked at the info about the components, and couldn't see
anything about pricing. The download page didn't mention it either, so I
naively assumed it was free! I hadn't seen a pricing page anywhere.
Looking again I spotted one linked from the "quick links" at the top
right.

Shame, it looked like a good component.

So, I'm also looking for a decent (X)HTML editor for ASP.NET. None of
the free or cheap ones I've seen so far produce anything like decent
(X)HTML, they all produce outdated junk.

If you find anything, please post back.
