    Creating some simple form buttons

    Hi guys,

    First of all, sorry if I'm going over old territory, I wasn't entirely sure what exactly to search for, but couldn't find anything that seemed directly specific to my needs.

    I'm quite novice at javaScript but I have a good background in other similar languages, so I find I pick up things quick. Basically I'm planning on reading through some more solid resources on this topic, but I'm kinda under the pump at the moment for something that I imagine wouldn't be too difficult with a lil nudge in the right direction.

    I have a form (using PHP) to update a mySQL database AND XML for flash, for a simple news page. At the moment I have the BBcode style of tags ([b][eb]). I was wondering how I can make a rich editor myself with just three buttons (one for italic, one for bold, one for links) that displays the text on screen to the user as WYSIWYG, and outputs the [b] [eb] tags for my PHP code.

    I don't need anyone to build it for me, just a tutorial link would do nicely.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    Are your BBcode tags working when you handwrite them? What program are you designing your webpages in? If you're not using XHTML <tags>, it sounds like you must be in a content manager.
    Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
    Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
