problem is, it appears to use the IE MSHTML rendering engine, 
which means once you start doing more than some bold and 
italics, you'll find it spits out poor HTML... it doesn't quote 
attributes and it also won't do lower-case...

and if you let people paste rich text in there, you're in for a treat...

anybody got one that *doesn't* pass it through the MSHTML 
parser?  that uses client-side script and brute force?
