    htmlarea

    Did any of you have used this online editor? I'm trying to find one to text fields in my forms, and I don't know how to make one.

    And which one is better: bbcodes or online editors like the one I just mentioned?
    php? mysql? apache? That's it.

    htmlarea is deprecated, use xiha instead (http://xinha.gogo.co.nz/ )

    for which editor is better: it depends on the backend. bbcode has the advantage that almost no malicious code can be entered (you cant use tags, javascript, embeds....), if you allow html (like what these htmleditors are producing) you have to filter any possible malicous tags/attributes in the backend (get rid of <script> tags, <embed>, onclick attributes and more) - if the backend does this I think the editor is better, since people do not have to know bbcodes (there are quite some people who get confused with the idea of 'tags' however they look like)
