HEdiTML is a very simple HTML Editor, with a goal of achieving at least feature-parity (except for the email-specific quote button) with the rich-text editor in gmail. Both HEdiTML and gmail rely on Internet Explorer to do the heavy lifting, via the latter's support of contentEditable / designMode / EditMode.
HEdiTML is written as a WinForms C# application, uses the WebBrowser control and COM Interop, and deployed via ClickOnce (Firefox users will need the FFClickOnce Add-on). It has been tested on Windows XP SP2 with .NET Framework 2.0, and on Windows Vista.
While it still has rough edges, I am using it to create this and other web pages. In industry parlance, I've started to eat my own dogfood.
Click on the logo in the upper-right corner or on the screenshot below to launch HEdiTML. First download can take a while, since some machines' configurations require mshtml, a rather large dll, to be made part of the deployment.
