David, the defacto standard is HTMLArea[0], which is based in 
javascript.  It has some nice features, such as importing an existing 
stylesheet into the editor, external config files, etc, and has some 
good plugins.  Another good option is FCKEditor[1] (unfortunate name 
though!) which seems little cleaner but slightly less extensible.  A 
slick but kinda limited option, Editize, is available from SitePoint[2] 
as a java applet with a number of APIs.  The applet approach has the 
advantage of being better supported cross-browser.  Finally, I've never 
used it but WysiwygPro has been recommended to me on an earlier thread 
on this list [3].  Looks cool, though!
