[Win32] Embedded HTML editor?

P: n/a
Hi,

Does anyone know of a cheap/free truely WYSIWYG (no
HTML/Preview thingie) HTML embeddable widget, similar to the RichEdit
widget?

Googling a while returned either
- browsed-based HTML widgets (I'd rather use a dedicated app)
- webmaster-oriented tools like Dreamweaver, etc.

Thank you :-)
JD.

When you find one... let me know (>.<)
My boss insisted on using a dreadful DHTML editor which creates code of this
quality:

<p><p><font class="h1">header<p/></font><br><br><br><font></font><p>

Or this little gem:

<a href="index.htm"><font color="blue"><u>home</u></font></a>

I suggest digging through http://www.sourceforge.net . I have, but there's
rather a lot of editors there =^.^=

BTW, I just found this work-in-progress that you might be interested

I'm on my way :-) For good measure, I'll take a look at Freshmeat.

Thx

Groan! How can they be smart enough to make an HTML editor, yet too stupid
to show any consideration for semantic mark-up.

A new, richer version is in the works.

Stiill, considering the dearth of those, writing a WYSIWYG editor
widget must be a lot of work, whether it's RTF or HTML. I'm at the
point where if I can't find an HTML widget, I was thinking of using
the RichEdit widget, and convert to HTML, either on the client side,
or through a PHP script over at the server.
