Thanks Karl.
I was thinking about the user interface itself. The code it outputs is a
good point however for me to consider as well.

I've used FCKEditor, which produces very clean markup if you set it up
right. Right now I'm fighting with it to stop breaking the back button when
the widget loads, but other wise it has been great. I do not, however, have
any information on how accessibile the thing itself is to use.
