actually, my company uses it in our content management system... lots of
companies use it...

however, it is *far* from ideal... look at the source code... no quoted attributes,
upper-case tags, munged code structure, etc...

it's unacceptable for valid HTML and unusable for XHTML...

activedit control is also far from ideal... it kept asking me for my Word2000
install CD, many of the features take forever to run (like inserting a hyperlink --
took 25sec. on a P4-1.4Ghz w/ 256M RAM)... it's actually a lot of
*completely* unnecessary bloat...

just be aware that there are others out there, or you could write your own that
also uses the HTML edit control...
