WYSIHTML5 is an open source rich text editor based on HTML5 technology and the progressive-enhancement approach. It uses a sophisticated security concept and aims to generate fully valid HTML5 markup by preventing unmaintainable tag soups and inline styles.


Features

  • It's fast and lightweight (smaller than TinyMCE, Aloha, ...)
  • Auto-linking of urls as-you-type
  • Generates valid and semantic HTML5 markup (even when the content is pasted from MS Word)
  • Uses class names instead of inline styles
  • Unifies line break handling across browsers
  • Uses sandboxed iframes in order to prevent identity theft through XSS
  • Speech-input for Chrome
  • No jQuery required

Browser Support

  •  Firefox 3.5+
  •  Chrome
  •  IE 8+
  •  Safari 4+
  •  Safari on iOS 5+
  •  Opera 11+
  • Graceful degradation: Unsupported browsers will get a <textarea>
