    I have seen a variety of sites that use a rich text editing box and have no idea how to accomplish this task. I have veiwed the source on many of these sites, and not surprisingly they are not easy to read as the source is generally compressed.

    I was wondering a few things about these boxes.

    First how would you accomplish this. I have though about using hidden DIVs that accept the input (much like facebook uses for PM recipient boxes) But I am not sure that this would be a valid solution and also would require extensive amounts of scripting.

    The second question that I have, is there any way to accomplish this task using standards compliant methods?

    Thanks in advance.

    Some use Flash, most use a mix of PHP and Javascripting ... called AJAX.

    You can find some examples with:
    http://ckeditor.com/
    or,
    http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/

    Those are free to use and mess-around with.
