Shopping for a client-side blogging editor

Requirements that at least one tool has failed:

  • blockquote (-gnome-blog)
  • lists (-gnome-blog)
  • intra-page links (-b2evolution editor)
  • @@cf IntegrityIsJobOne (firefox; most thru-the-web tools)
  • single-gesture paste link (+evolution composer -gnome-blog)
  • linux support
  • ma OS X support


  • real-time preview
  • direct-manipulation editing
  • open source. might be a requirement

Oops... I think I'm confusing thru-the-web editing tools with client side tools. see tinyMCE module for drupal.
