Unfortunately it's not that simple. There's an extra file that gets 
called (editarea.htm) and its in there that most of the 'magic' 
occurs. I imagine we could create several of these editarea files for 
the various browsers that could have WYSIWYG capabilities.

I'll take a look at Mozilla's rich text capabilities. I just 
downloaded and installed it on my Mac.

Cheers and Thanks!
