Was wondering what the best WYSIWYG editor that I can embed in a web-site based on the ASP.NET MVC Framework? Ideally it should be Xhtml compliant and allow users to embed images etc.

The only one I've used before is the FCKEditor, how well does this work with the MVC - has anyone tried...?

My main requirements are:

  • Xhtml compliance

  • Deprecate (as best it can) when Javascript is disabled

  • Modify the toolbar options

  • Skinable (at least easily change the look and feel)

  • Easy to use client side api

  • Plays nicely with the ASP.NET MVC framework


As Nick said, the XStandard editor is good, but requires a plug-in...what are your thoughts on requiring a plug-in for web-site functionality?



Additional info:

As Hippo answered, the TinyMCE edit is ideal - for completness here's there download page:

There's a download for .NET, JSP, ColdFusion, PHP and a jQuery plug-in too.
Also, there are language packs available.

Been using it for a while now, best editor I've used. Thanks all!

I really like TinyMCE which also should fit your requirements. It is well documented and offers a lot of possibilities to configure.
