Hi Experts,

Where could I find a Rich Text textbox for web forms, sort of what I'm using to type this text into, but instead of the square bracket code, for it show the affect immediately, for non-html users.

Also, to support pasted text from Word.

I can't find the cost for tinyMCE?

Do you know if I can remove/disable some features/icons, like image?

Also, I'd eventually need to save the HTML into a db - any thoughts on that? I know certain things in HTML will crash my SQL Syntax, like double quotes, or the semicolon in   - I could use .txt files, but I think that'll hurt my performance.

tinyMCE is free for general use, no cost :) There is an enterprise version but I'm not sure what it offers, I know I've used the free version many times over and it's met all my needs.

To enable/disable features, have a look here:

As for saving HTML, I would def save it to a database, and if you use parameterized queries, you don't need to worry about messing up your sql statements. Just make sure that your html is safe, people could save malicious javascript, that if run, could screw with people on your site. There's a good tutorial on EE explaining how to do this:
