I hope this is the right forum for this.

I am using HTMLArea in a project.

It doesn't work for the Safari users.

Does anyone know another HTMLEditor application I can plug into the Web App?

All my clients need is to bold, make italic, add lists and colour changes.

If you don't require WYSIWYG editing, you could implement a solution like the one used right here in the JavaRanch forums

This page could be a starting point for some more research, particularly this one and this one claim to be Safari-compatible and free.
