Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

I am working on a project to test and improve coexistence between the Notes client and the leading web based rich text editors, whether they are DHTML based, Java based or whatever.  I have a list of some, and wondered if any of you know of others.  Also, if you have strong feelings about any of these, pro or con, let me know that as well.  Some of the editors I know about are listed below, along with others I found on a quick scan of the web.

Know any others?  Have any strong opinions about the usefulness of any of these, about the level of support, about integration with Notes/Domino?  Which have you used, and which do you think are most popular.  Let me know what you think.  I'll try to take the final results, along with my project findings, and publish some useful results at the end as a resource for others.

Known, or recommended
Java applet that comes with NotesYuck, but I have to work with it anyway, I guess.
