TinyMCE is an open source, freely distributed, web-based, cross-browser and platform-independent software project implemented in PHP/HTML and designed from the offset to act as a powerful WYSIWYG, JavaScript and HTML editor for websites.

Features at a glance

Key features include the ability to convert HTML textarea fields, as wel as other HTML elements, to editor instances, which makes it easy to be integrated with an existing system (only two lines of code are needed).
