This is more appropriate for dhtml, I think.
It would be possible to make an html editor with server side technology. You'd need either frames or XMLHttpRequest (mozilla, win IE) on the client.

I wouldn't do it that way; It would require users to wait for each reply.
The one in yahoo is windows-only and only works in IE. I think the mozilla team is working on isContentEditable for mozilla. You might try to use the Range object for moz.
