I’m surprised at myself for this; that i waited this long.
I need to put a WYSIWYG editor in place. and the module to use is, WYSIWYG. Here is the link. it’s an API and you have to use a library to go along with it. that library for me will be CKEditor. Read the whole post: that’s what is going into drupal 8 core.
You’ll need an editor to allow your users an easier way to add html content. it has a sponsor in http://www.unleashedmind.com/. there is a link where you can make a donation to this group. drop by and give them a buck or two. they do good work.
I’m installing this in sand and will install it in prod later today. I’ll post some notes about it later.
back at this now. but I have concerns about these types of editors and mobile devices. and the download of the scripts that the editors require. doing more research….

Great news for CKEditor and its community: Drupal, one of the most used CMS platforms in the world,decided that CKEditor will be the editor included inside Drupal 8, which should be hitting the market by the end of 2013.
