Simple Textarea Editor with Search/Replace

I need to add find, find-next and replace(all) capability to a textarea. There are dozens of javascript rich text and/or HTML editors out there but I need a very simple javascript only textarea editor for plain text. I have a limited mainframe environment, so I don't have ASP, PHP or server side anything. I could probably spend hours and hours brute-force developing the code, but I was hoping someone had aleady been down this path before.

You may also check out the current industry standards for this sort of thing. Neither are server side. Both are strictly HTML/JS.

I highly recommend FCKEditor. It has everything you're looking for right out of the box and is easy to configure if you read the documentation. It's really a breeze to set up and then you can tweak it quite extensively.
