Richie Rich is an HTML document editor that runs within a Web browser. Unlike other in-line HTML editors, this operates straight on the DOM to avoid incongruities between what is visible in the front end and the HTML that is created in the back end. It supports undo, mouse selection, cursor positioning, and creation of headings, paragraphs, lists, links, bold, italic, and underline.

Release Notes: This release featured increased usability. The sample page now shows the editor in its own scrollable area, and the troublesome scroll repositioning code was removed. You can 'preview' the page by clicking outside the editor or by hitting 'esc'. It is now recommended that the "backspace action" be disabled in Firefox. Instructions are on the Richie Rich website.
Release Notes: This release sees a huge improvement in usability with the introduction of a right-click context menu for most commands. There are major feature enhancements, including ability to add images, code snippets, and quotes, as well as an overhaul of the code to integrate Richie Rich into your Web application. Numerous bugfixes and increased stability are also on the menu.
Release Notes: More work on empty widget handling was done, as well as streamlining the "activation" of a widget by clicking on it, and ensuring that all links are parsed and have the Richie Rich events attached to them when the editor loads.
Release Notes: The code to apply formatting to selected text was made much more robust. Problems caused by having no text present were fixed.
Release Notes: This release increases the robustness of RichieRich considerably. It's no longer billed as an in-browser editor, but more as a pasting-tool with formatting capabilities, the idea being that people use their favorite word processor to create a document, or receive it in email or whatever, and then use this tool to transfer that content to the Web.
