A list of WYSIWYG editors for content mangement

There are times when you would like to have a text area in your web site that resembles like a word processor's page, with a lot of controls to format your text. If you have worked with any content management system (CMS) or a wiki, you have most likely come across one. I was looking for a WYSIWYG editor and came across a few of them. Thought I sould share the list with everyone so that you don't have to waste your precious time. The list below is not in any particular order.

  1. FCKEditor. Looked like the editor that had the most features. This site provides a demo and a very good documentation as well.
  2. TinyMCE. Wherever people talk about WYSIWYG editor, they invariably mention both FCKEditor and TinyMCE. Provides a demo and by looking at the source of demo you can find how easy it is to integrate this editor.
  3. Xinha.They have an excellent demo page that allows you to customize the editor on the fly and see.
  4. Kupu. Kupu is from Open Source Content Management team. I could not see a demo anywhere (the site provides two links to Plone and Silva, unfortunately both are broken). I could only see a few screenshots.
Hope that helps for someone on the lookout for the right editor.
