open source tools for WYSIWYG HTML generation

Hi,

I'd like to allow the users to enter HTML (without knowing they are entering HTML) into a webpage. I want the editor to more or less look like a normal wordpad editor, but generate html when they hit submit. This will replace the stodgy and impractical textarea that I am using now.

I think there are some open source products that already do this very well. I've seem to remember something called freetext edit, and I have just found fckedit and kupu.

Does any one have any experience integrating any of these tools onto a web page? Does any one have any recommendations?

I'm working on a great open source project, and I want to incorporate this feature.

Thanks in advance,
Skip

Thanks Bear.

I think I found a good one at http://www.openwebware.com/

I haven't test it out much yet, but at least it was real simple to integrate, has all of the features I want, and their open source philosophy seems right.

Best,
Skip
