    Check these ready made ones out:

    If you really want to write one yourself, these might help:

    Keep in mind that WYSIWYG editors create badly written markup. I suggest you learn how semantics apply to X/HTML. Semantics is really a very important subject when it comes to X/HTML.

    Code for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, & Opera, then add fixes for IE, not vice versa.

    I think this is a prejudice, it's always about the user, if wysiwyg or not

    True WYSIWYG editors are just tools and it is the responsibility of the person using it to clean up the code. The thing is that many people who use them don't bother to learn how tot code themselves, so they can't clean up the mess.

    A WYSIWYG editor can't tell the semantics involved in marking up code, can it? I suggest you learn how semantics apply to X/HTML. Semantics is really a very important subject when it comes to X/HTML.
