    SPAW Editor v.2 is a web based in-browser WYSIWYG HTML editor control. It is a replacement for standard HTML textarea fields for rich text content editing.

    It's not a stand alone editor for writing PHP files. That's why you might not have heard of it.

    I've been using TinyMCE [] for about a year now and haven't found anything better. For anyone looking to integrate a WYSIWYG editor in to their site, it is the route I recommend; Certainly over this product.

    Either this company is confused, or I have lost the ability to read English. paw/en_spaw_purchase []

    "Unlimited" to "Enterprise" license
    EUR 100,-
    For unlimited use in projects and applications you own or develop. Includes all updates to versions 2.x and downgrade right to version 1.x.

    "Single server/application" to "Enterprise" license
    EUR 175,-
    For unlimited use in projects and applications you own or develop. Includes all updates to versions 2.x and downgrade right to version 1.x. Applicable for upgrades from single server/application license for SPAW Editor 1.x and 2.x

    Unless I'm reading that wrong, you can buy the full 'unlimited' version for 100 euros. Or you can upgrade from the single server version to the unlimited version for 175 euros.

    WTF? Hard to trust a company that can't even price their own products.

    Another nice editor is FCKeditor []. At least for me it worked better than all the rest that I had to test and it was all of it available under the LGPL. If I remember properly, some parts (plugins) for TinyMCE were only under a commercial license.
