Rich Text Editor

Jon
All,

This is tough to know where to place this, as it's somewhat of a JS issue,
but I'm writing PHP apps and you guys have always been able to help in the
past. I'm building a Content Management System right now - and though the
application works phenominal (probably the best app I have written actually)
in Mozilla, and Windows versions of IE 5+, I'm having problems getting the
Rich Text Editor to show up in Safari and IE for Macintosh. I'm using the
'cross browser' one written by Kevin Roth.

My question is: Does anyone use this RTE with their CMSs and maybe have a
fix for the Safari issue? If not, is there another RTE out there that might
work better than what I'm using? My boss is a huge Mac guy, so I'm basically
going to have to come up with a solution of some sort, and though I know JS
a bit - I've tried all day now to write code against the Safari problem, and
am running out of ideas. Plus I'm much better at PHP than JS, so it's
hurting me to not know the language really well. Can anyone help?

I know. Perhaps you can say 'Firefox required on Mac'?

Basically, that's what we're diong now, but since Safari is the default
browser on OSX we'd really like an option to use it. Currently, Safari is
picked up as the browser and there's a message to the user with a link to
download mozilla 1.3+ - and the HTML version of it shows up fine, but the
actual RTE side doesn't work, and my boss is wanting a fix. I might go in
and start trying to write code against it if I can't find a better option :(

Others are working on it too: http://www.fckeditor.net/safari.html
