Building a WYSIWYG HTML Editor Part 2/2
(Page 1 of 6 )

FONT face=Verdana size=2>In part one of this two part series we took a look at a simple way to create a fully functional browser-based HTML editor with a bit of JavaScript and Internet Explorerís execCommand function. When I wrote that article I promised a second part in which I would add the ability to save the HTML to a database and work with it in a useful application, and today I'm going to show you how to do just that. To test the HTML editor and extended functionality that we're going to create throughout this article, you should have the HTML editor from part one of this article installed on your PC with Internet Explorer 5.5+. You can download part one's support material here. You should also have SQL Server 2000 and IIS installed, because we will be creating a database and using ASP to add records to that database. The examples in this article can be just as easily translated to work with PHP and MySQL or .NET, and if you need any help just drop me a line in the forums.
