I need to decide on a richtextbox control for my business.
I'm leaning towards a payware control...thinking that it has the best chance of being cross platform/browser. If free can accomplish the same thing, that is fine with me.
What do you think?

I started out with the FreeTextBox control. It worked great, except it had zero compatibility with Safari.
I switched to some payware controls that all claimed x-browser compatibility. None of them worked with Safari either. I tried rich text boxes from:
So i switched back to www.freetextbox.com. I disabled the control for safari browsers...I'll still have to listen to safari users complain about it, but at least i'm not paying licensing fees.
IT sounds like there is something about safari (that it's not a gecko based browser?) that doesn't allow developers to extend richtextbox functionality to Safari.
1. I would love to understand this better if anyone can shed some insight.
2. Does anybody see java rich text editors as an alternative that might be x-browser compatible?

You can also take a look at
NOV rich text editor. It's an awesome cross platform RTE, but it's not free.
