I prefer the rte_pb_htmlarea RTE based on HTMLArea 3.0 for the following reasons:

  • cross-browser (Works on IE and Mozilla)
  • best table-editing functions (vastly superior to the default IE-only RTE)
  • but: with mozilla, there have been reports with issues regarding
    • the image-browser (errors- it seems you have to install the RTE as a "local" extension)
    • the RTE adding empty lines for no obvious reason (transformation errors with BR/P's?)

Configure the RTE to have full edit capabilities:

Important: In order for your the IE users to see this RTE instead of the default RTE, use the following steps:

  1. go to the extension module
  2. select "Loaded Extensions" and activate the checkbox "Display Shy Extensions"
  3. un-install "Rich Text Editor" (rte), the default RTE
  4. install the rte_pb_htmlarea RTE
