Dear,
I developed a content management using jsp/Oracle. The problem is that this application will be used by users who do not know HTML, because the content is stored in oracle as large object in the form of HTML text. I need a solution where the user sees what he gets (what you see is what you get).
Many thanks in advance
Latif

Are you saying that the HTML tags are also stored in oracle?
Why not just store the data (text), extract them and process them (by wrapping HTML or XML tags around them) as needed.
It's just one thought!

There should be a Java applet somewhere that will function as a WYSIWYAG textarea. I know in the Microsoft realm there is an ActiveX control for this sort of thing.

There's a great GUI text editor out there that will do what you want called ActivEdit. The drawback to this editor is that it only currently works for PC clients with Intrnet Explorer:

Great bang for the buck, but it's an ActiveX control. It comes with a JSP custom tag to allow you to easily drop it onto a web page.
