In-browser WYSIWYG editor (MAC OS 9/PC-IE5)??
Hey folks, I've been searching high and low for the past 4 days for an in-browser WYSIWYG editor applet that will work on the PC (IE 5.X+) AND on Mac OS 9/X. Please note, Mac OS 9 does not support anything higher than the 1.1.8 java runtime. For the life of me I can't find anything out there that doesn't cost thousands of dollars for a domain license. This is for a school district and cannot afford to spend more than $300 on this control. Editlet(.com) doesn't answer to email requests (my email bounced.)
Simultaneous posting, AccessEdit is a version of htmlarea
Unfortunately it requires Mozilla 1.3. As unreasonable as it may sound, it must work on what the users already have (Mac IE 5)
HTMLArea works on IE; I haven't tested on the Mac IE, but probably works there too. If AccessEdit is a fork, it probably will work as well.
It all hinges upon whether Mac IE 5 supports the contenteditable flag. If it does'nt I think youd be hard pressed to find a cheap solution.
No, it does not support contenteditable - otherwise freetextbox would do it for me...Flash, none really support images, which is a problem. Sounds like there's a niche market that needs to be filled, but I don't have the time to write it myself ;-)
Just an FYI, I just got a response from the developers of htmlArea and it will not work on Mac IE. Thanks for all the suggestions, at this point, I think the Mac users are going to get an ugly textarea and PC users will get a freetextbox control...
