into Pagetool for the editing of html pages.
I guess you would have to toggle the edit box from WYSIWYG to a text area
when the user changed from a code type of html to php.

Not sure if anyone has done this, I've looked at a few, but all seem
very dependant on which browser the user is using, and on which
platform. Editize look OK, except it's commercial, and they then bombard
you with loads of emails about why haven't you purchased it! I think
there was an ActiveX editor from Microsoft mentioned in a previous
thread on this list as well, but you'd have to use a Microsoft browser
to make that one work!
When I finally find some free time I'm hoping to get Template plugins to
work in Pagetool. Then the user wouldn't need to do anything other than
fill in boxes with content. Possibly if I can make the templates dynamic
there could even be a "click here for bold text" (fill in some text in a
box), "click here for normal text" (continue in normal text in a box)
buttons so that text could be formatted a bit within the user content.
What exactly are you trying to do with the (so called ) WYSIWYG editors?
Most only seem to allow very basic formatting, various headings, bold,
italic, font size maybe, and not much more. If a standard page look is
required then a Template plugin with a box for the page heading, a box
for a sub heading, a box for content and so on would _almost_ achieve
the same, _and_ you could ensure the page used the correct styles, not
sure if any of the WYSIWYG editors can apply styles at all.
