There are times that I love Drupal and times that I hate it. (I wonder how many blog posts will start with that sentence.)
Right now, my search is for a WYSIWYG editor. That acronym alone takes long enough to type because I have to mentally say, "what you see is what you get."
I've searched the Drupal modules for WYSIWYG editors, and I had found a review of five WYSIWYG editors that was then amended to praise the YUI Rich Text Editor. But upon installation for my own site, and using Firefox (the only browser I like to use), I was disappointed.
The menu bar was messed up, and it would prefer tags over tags for paragraphs. Although I could change this option, the settings warned that this would only work in IE. Sure enough, enabling the option means Enter/Return does nothing when typed through Firefox.
So now I'm looking at TinyMCE and FCKEditor. Neither have a full release version for Drupal 6, and although FCKEditor has a release candidate for Drupal 6, it warns against using it with Firefox 3 when Firebug is also installed, which is true for me. It then recommends using a nightly build to solve the problem, but I'm not sure that I want to mess with a nightly build.
So this leaves me still hard-coding my content within Drupal. If both TinyMCE and FCKEditor were options for me, which would you recommend and why? Is there something better that I'm missing?
