    I have been looking for a rich text editor to integrate with a little program I'm writing. I have downloaded and tried JRichTextEditor, Ekit, MetaPhase editor and probably a few others. But none of them was good enough for me: bugs or too many libs or too complex integration required. Specifically there is this bug in JTextPane (as I see it): select a word in the middle of a paragraph, press Ctrl+X (cut) and then paste it with Ctrl+V at the same place. Guess what? It would be inserted with a new paragraph... That's the usual JTextPane behavior. I considered embedding Open Office Writer. I was desperate enough to embed a browser (JCEF Chromium) with a JavaScript html editor... But I finally found it: SimplyHTML. The source code is perfect. In fact as I read it through I feel aesthetic satisfaction. There are no flaws as found in other editors. Integration was a matter of a couple of hours (I simply had to downgrade the features, now I can add them back if necessary). I am very grateful to the guys who wrote this editor. I'm writing an open source program as well. There will be no license violation. ( Thank you.
