    Which textarea (text editor) control is most manageable?

    I have no experience with selecting embedded text editors (textarea
    replacements) for ASP.NET Web Forms so I hope we can generate a series of
    comments regarding the selection of which text editor has proven to be most
    usable from a developer's perspective as well as a user's perspective?

    I used this one in a project and was happy with it from my point of
    view, very configurable (I told it to get rid of most of the options!).

    No complaints from the users so far, so I'm calling that a success. :-)

    I was trying to configure that one myself and their docs leave me hanging
    which is why I asked to get perhaps a broader view of what is available. If
    you are using customConfig would you share your config file with me? I'm
    missing something simple but just don't see what it is yet --or-- I'm stil
    lookign for somebody who blogged this issue if you know of a well written
    explanation to refer me to.
