Hi All,
i want the ranchers inputs in creating a text editor in the web page.

My requirement is to give a form where the user can give their inputs in the text area. The users must be allowed to do text formatting like bold,underline,strike etc. in the text area, that is the text area must be text editor to them.They are also allowed to insert image in the text editor.And then when they submit the form, the content in the text editor is displayed to them in a page.

Every one's idea in this is most welcomed.

Have a look at the FCKEditor project on SourceForge. There are others like that out there, e.g. one called TinyMCE.

"Arjun jg",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
