JXHTMLEDIT is a free Open Source browser-based HTML/XHTML content authoring tool based on the Java 2 Platform that allows WYSIWYG editing on multiple platforms (require the Sun JavaTM Plug-in 1.4 or higher installed on client).

JXHTMLEDIT screenshotJava Powered Logo JXHTMLEdit is a cross-platform WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML/XHTML content authoring tool, a very small Java Applet based on the Java 2 Platform. JXHTMLEdit provides word processor-like user interface that allows users to edit the XHTML document directly in the final form (as will be rendered). This empower non-technical users to become content contributors without any knowledge of HTML or XHTML.

Specifically designed and optimized to edit only the <body> portion of HTML/XHTML page, JXHTMLEdit outputs to your choice HTML or well-formed XHTML.
JXHTMLEDIT preloads the HTML/XHTML content during startup from a specified html form field (e.g.: <textarea>) where it also saves the generated code.

JXHTMLEdit has been designed to offer great flexibility and could be used to easily integrate WYSIWYG authoring functionality into existing websites, CMS, WMS or any other Web-based software. The Applet JAR archive is less than 150 KB and it's cacheable, so it loads very quickly.
