Yes, it is quite easy to make a very basic cross-browser editor for
Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla. However, when you go into
details and more advanced functionality it is very tricky and time
consuming to deal with plenty of differences and limitations in both web
browsers. That is probably one reason why you only see few cross-browser
editors and a number of them still in beta even after quite a long time
with "contenteditable" support in Mozilla.
For example, our HardCore Web Content Editor
(http://editor.hardcoreinternet.co.uk/), consists of approximately 1800
So you should probably think twice before you take a quick decision to
make you own cross-browser - unless you only need very basic
functionality - or you want to take it on as a challenge and get to know
your web browsers intimately. :-)
