That will be a project for a couple of months, if not years!

Why not use something that you can include out-of-the-box, like FCKEditor? It is free and open source and has an active community in the event you'd have any questions about it: http://www.fckeditor.net/

Use FCKeditor, like abel says. This is probably the most complete editor, although not perfect. Don't waste your time unless you're a javascript-über-guru with too much time on your hand. (Or unless this is a school assignment.)

Chiming in with previous posters, there are any number of ready-made products available to you already.

FCKeditor is very nice. TinyMCE is another that's pretty widely used (http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/). Both are 100% HTML/CSS/JavaScript based.

If you want a taste of the level of complexity involved in developing this yourself, download any of those two products and take a look at the code :)
