As part of some content management development, I'm looking for a
web-based way of editing content that doesn't require everyone to
learn HTML.

- Good HTML code quality (i.e. doesn't leave <p><br></p>, etc. all
over the place, standards compliance would be nice but can be
sorted out by post-processing with tidy more easily than
unnecessary but valid markup can)

- customisable interface (e.g. can specify which tags users can use, etc)

- works in Mozilla (1.4+) / Netscape 7.1 / Internet Explorer 6,
our major intranet browsers

- cost isn't a problem provided site licences are available, a
commercial solution would be fine. However, a preview of it in
action so we can test the other bits is needed.

Almost requirements:
- easy to use with a bit of training

- 'code view' editing (only an almost requirement because I'm
assuming some sort of Java(script) application or similar that can
fall back to <textarea>)

- Works in Mozilla 1.0+/Netscape 7.0 which is still fairly common on
the intranet

- works in other browsers too.

- stylesheet support without hand-editing the code.

- the more flexible the interface and allowed tags, the better.

- easy to use without (more than minimal) training

Not particularly needed:
- table support (unless it has really good <th scope=...> <td
headers=...> etc support, it'll be easier for us to write a
dedicated data table editor)

Currently we're trying HTMLarea2, but the 'good quality code' bit is
giving us a lot of trouble.
