Need more expert feedback on Web Editors

I greatly appreciate the feedback I go on my Web Editors resource page, and have worked on it some more. Could any of you more sophisticated web developers, and other generally smart people, take a look and see what you think.  If you could start with the main page, and then take a look inside one or two editors, but specifically inside the entry for TTW WYSIWYG Editor, not because it is the best, but because it has the in-line demo I am planning to add to as many of the editors as possible.

Any thoughts or suggestions?  Information that would be better inside the view or inside the document?  Navigation tips?  

I am still going through and validating information for each editor, which takes time as some have died and some have simply moved, but feel free to leave feedback on any of them if you know something I ddon't.

I have a great visual web editor in my web browser: SeaMonkey. I just press Ctrl-E to edit any web page.

Another great "web editor" I found recently, is Sofor iPublisher6, it's much better than Domino alone, and it is a Domino application.

You can make in a few minutes complete web pages or even web applications. It has an own tag language which does things like getdocumentbykey, populate table rows, and you can even add your own tags with LotusScript.

It has also a great RichText editor in web browsers, which supports drag and drop or copy paste of pictures. I hope XPages 8.5.3 will have also the promised support for drag and dropping and pasting files.

I have preferred tinyMCE as it is the editor of choice in Wordpress. I have since used it on another site and found the integration seamless. I have considered moving to CKEditor to support IBM's choice but the tinyMCE is getting a lot of attention in the Wordpress community.
