Created because of problems ... finding a WYSIWYG editor for Safari and OS X Dashboard widgets. Very simple, very light-weight, this is an excellent editor for places where simple editing is the name of the game (e.g., blog comments or on-the-fly documentation and feedback). Works with widgets, and allows multiple instances per page.
