I am running a custom web forum and therefore, I need to implement a rich
text editor.

Searching Google and other sites, I can find plenty of editors like
FCKEditor, openWSIWYG and so on. Before testing some of them, I would like
to have a recommendation from you.

these issues are important:

- easy to include in existing pages, so less danger of unwanted interaction
with other javascript files
- cross-browser compatibility for most important browsers, IE and Firefox in

We've tried HTMLarea, TinyMCE and FCKEditor in the past. Of the three
FCKeditor was the best for our purposes. Things we were looking for
were configurability, ability to run multiple editors on the same
page, ease of set up, how light it was in terms of size and
installation, quality of HTML and useful features like cut and paste
to the WYSIWYG. We weren't looking for uploading, AJAX functionality,
smilies or anything other than the basics.

I've used WidgEditor on a few sites, and I like it.
