I am looking for a bare bones HTML editor (other than Notepad) that we
might license and make available to our users. The goal is to allow our
users, who likely do not know HTML code, to easily customize the text of
HTML Help files. In a previous job, I used HTML Search and Replace, with
which I performed quick editing on multiple files at once.

We only want to support a single editor for users to customize the Help
files. This way we may prevent them from opening the files in Word and
adding proprietary code that does who knows what to the overall Help
system. However, we want a WYSIWYG interface that does not expose or
break the HTML code.

Thanks in advance for any ideas. I am on Digest, so no need to write me
separately. We have plenty of time to decide.
