What is Kupu?

Kupu is a rich-text ('WYSIWYG') editor for browsers, written entirely in JavaScript. It runs on Internet Explorer and Mozilla based browsers, and produces well-formed, clean (X)HTML. It can (optionally) save to a page without reloading, provides generic browser interfaces to the server (so-called 'library drawers') to browse for images and links and has a large set of tools (functions) available, as well as providing an API to easily roll your own.

Kupu is distributed under terms of a BSD-style license and is used in a number of commercial and open-source products. There's a friendly, active community and there's quite extensive documentation available.
