Re: HTML(+)-editor available?

I wrote and alpha released a vanilla HTML editor a while back, using the
Andrew Toolkit, giving it a wysiwyg feel. Works pretty well, however I
haven't got around to implementing the http access (the editor was only
for local files), as I decided that should be implemented at a different
level. Since then, HTML+ has hit the scene, which my editor doesn't know
about. No, it's not an SGML based thing, but a pure hack on HTML. I'd
like to continue working on this: updating it for HTML+ and adding http
support but I'm not sure if I have the time. If anyone else is
interested (perhaps some of the people who picked up the htmltext might
like to give me some feedback...?) in cooperating, I'd be happy to hear
from you.

The almost-wysiwyg aspect is very desirable. We now use the editor for
almost all document creation here and not having to see the raw html
entities is many orders of magnitude better than "vi", no matter how
simple people claim html is.
