5 Online Rich Text Editors built using jQuery

As defined in Wikipedia – “An Online rich-text editor presents a ‘what-you-see-is-what-you-get’ interface for editing rich text within web browsers. The aim is to reduce the learning curve associated with users trying to express their formatting directly as valid HTML markup.”

I was looking out for a few Rich Text Editors built on top of jQuery and here’s a compilation of the ones I found.

TinyMCE also has a jquery build. It's quite a mature project in comparison to many of these.

I made jQuery.contentEditable, a light-weight rich text editor plugin for jQuery that uses the contentEditable attribute in modern browsers. It has keyboard shortcuts (e.g. Ctrl+B for bold, etc.) and a pretty toolbar.

If you, like me, don't need rich text editting, check out PhenoEdit (http://babalin.com/phenoedit/) - it's very small and handy if you don't need all the features of a rich text editor.
