WYSIWYG HTML Editor

Can someone give me a link to a tutorial of some sort on how to create a WYSIWYG editor in .NET (C#), that can be used to generate HTML or a special form of proprietory XML?

I would really like to develop it as a custom control, like RichTextBox but not using RTF, but HTML instead.

Any help would be wonderful!

Rich UI or web UI?

For rich UI, you need to embed HTMLED (I think that's what it's called... the HTML editor that's embeddable from IE).

For web UI, you can use this[1]. It's free, and works with IE/Win and Mozilla 1.3+ (all platforms).

One that stands alone in a windows forms application, not over the web. Is HTMLED a COM/COM+ component?

Yes, it's a COM component (specifically, an ActiveX control).
