For some javascript solutions, look at the following (not free software)

Plain old html should handle the minimum fonts issue.
Anything more is likely to be fat, or error prone. (Subject to individuals and how they configure)

If we can keep speller as a separate question, permit me to point out that there are many many people who depend on their browser's capability to enlarge fonts or they cannot read. Similarly, some people demand seeing more of the totality of lines involved, wanting to maintain control of the fonts to keep them small. Both using familiarity of either existing desktop fonts (eg Windows) or browser functions.

So I suggest that you go with existing html font functions, for applications on internet.

Now if this is intranet, and you have knowledge of staff who will use it, and control over desktop capabilities, such as ability to deploy specific fonts to desktops, then that is a different story, so go ahead with non-html at leisure.

Remember now what it is that html is after all. It is first and foremost a language for publishing. The 'T' is for 'text'.

For speller I dunno. For intranet, I'd go with something like MS-Office, look for a way to hook to what is already on desktop, and fat is gone. Or, if not on desktop you can put it there.

For internet, I'd surf the free eMail sites and see how they do it. Find what you like and clone it. In fact, that may also help you with the font part of question.

Salut Renaud! Trouves-tu le EE utile?

Here's a solution, though I think it might be more expensive than what you want: Thinkfree Office.

http://www.thinkfree.com/products/pd_office20.jsp

It's a subscription-bases Microsoft Office compatible application that runs off the web. Version 1.5 was $50 per year, they've release version 2.0 now.

A plus tard,
Eufracia

i think Thinkfree Office is probably the best choice to go with, as Eufracia said, if you are really looking for a MS Word type app.

If you want something simpler like MobileOakAI's comment on HTML: take a look at NETxt at http://netxt.free-techie.org org or http://netxt2.free-techie.org

It's less superior to teraplane's suggestions but it's FREE. If you like it, I can send you the source files.
