openWYSIWYG 1.01 beta (Rich textarea replacement)

Author: Steve | Homepage

Description: openWYSIWYG is a 100% free cross-browser WYSIWYG editor that replaces the plain <textarea>s in your forms. Among its highlights are:

  • Format text, align paragraphs, create lists, insert images and tables, all visually.
  • View the HTML source code of what you're editing.
  • It loads extremely fast and is completely written in JavaScript and DHTML.
  • 100% free, open source application released under the LGPL, meaning you can distribute it in your content management system or custom web application, all free and without restrictions!
  • openWYSIWYG is cross-browser compatible and will work with the most popular internet browsers, such as IE 5.5+ (Windows), Firefox 1.0+, Mozilla 1.3+ and Netscape 7+.

Current version: 1.01 beta (March 22nd, 06). We'll update this script once newer versions are released.
