Hi, all

I have this JSP site that shows news. The administrator user can edit this news(there is a deferent login for that)

What I want to know is to edit this news the administrator user must get some thing like a word application so he can color the text and change font size etc.. very easily.

I know this can be done by an applet. But applets run on the clint machines. And it needs JRE on the clint side.

I need some thing that is not runs on the clint side. So this has to be done only using JSP or servlets.

Thank You

You could try to use special markers like this forum (Instant UBB Code).
Code into brackets that you'll transform server-side.

Client side means HTML and Javascript. There is nothing that servlets or JSP can do to help you with this.

As such, moving this to the HTML forum.
