    This is an awesome, FREE, functioning source editor. It is ALL client side JavaScript. Much easier and more universal to implement this than most any other similar controls out there. It was a pain though to figure out how to get the source version running, and this thing was all screwed up in IE9 & IE10 at first. I've provided a solution to both of these issues for you though! They won't allow me to post a URL here, so to find my solutions search for ticket #65, or in a number of responses I posted in the discussion forum regarding source code, IE9, or IE10. Since this is an open source freebie, and the posts are barely trickling in for this now, I felt compelled to help out... I wish someone had done this for me. Well, actually patch #56 did provide the heavy lifting for the IE9+ patches to begin with...

    Good editor! I've been using it for a couple of years. I would, however, like to be able to configure the tab size (I usually use 2 chars) and also to configure the cursor to, for eg., a block. The very thin and dim line currently being used is sometimes hard to see, forcing one to use your mouse to re-establish the current cursor position in your text.

    Very good app though it needs to run in compatibility view in IE 10 to avoid the shadows. This slows it down a bit. Also would like to see the Tabs set to 4 characters instead of 8, or have them user configurable.

    Creates trouble in IE 10. It creates text shadows in IE10. Cursor randomely shakes in IE 10. Also when I try to display an edited string (from java) to the client on editarea js it some times created unusual strings like "µ__functions__µ" or "µ_END_µ"
