Formatting the cfinput richtext area

I am building a form.  I would like to use the RTE cfinput attribute, but it gives me WAY too many buttons (see screenshot).

How do I control which buttons are used in the toolbars?

Also, does this save the copy as html in the a blob element of a mysql field.

Thanks Experts!
<cfinclude TEMPLATE="adminHeader.cfm">
<div style="width:600px; text-align:left;">

it's really all covered in the CFML reference manual and CF Developers Guide.

if you do not have them - download free PDFs from adobe.com:

and Rakshith (from CF dev team) has a very good blog post about CF8 richtext editor:

PS: at the very least, add toolbar="basic" to your <cftextarea> tag - this will display a toolbar with a fewer buttons.
