TinyMCE: Two editors with different CSS

I want to have two editors on the same page.

I want each editor to use a unique css file for formatting the content that is edited.

TinyMCE does allow for multiple editors:
      // from TinyMCE JS settings        
      elements : "editor1,editor2,editor3",

The problem is that TinyMCE does NOT seem to allow for different CSS files for these editors:
      // from TinyMCE JS settings        
      content_css : "../css/editor1.css",

How can I define a different CSS file for the content of each editor?

It looks like you may need to call tinyMCE.init() once for each editor that you want to use a given stylesheet with.

The code may look like this:


var tinyMCE_options = {
        mode : "exact",
        elements : "editor1",
        content_css : "../css/editor1.css"
};
 
tinyMCE.init(tinyMCE_options);
tinyMCE_options.elements = 'editor2';
tinyMCE_options.content_css = '../css/editor2.css';
tinyMCE.init(tinyMCE_options);

You should NOT call tinyMCE.init() once for each editor that you want to use a given stylesheet with. That will waste memory and make everything run slower.

This should be done using the built-in API after TinyMCE has been initiated.

http://wiki.moxiecode.com/index.php/TinyMCE:API/tinymce.dom.DOMUtils/loadCSS


tinyMCE.get('editor1').dom.loadCSS('editor1.css');
tinyMCE.get('editor2').dom.loadCSS('editor2.css');
tinyMCE.get('editor3').dom.loadCSS('editor3.css');
