Rich-text editors, also known as online rich-text editors, are web components that allow users to edit and enter text within a web browser. Rich-text editors are used in numerous ways such as in enhancing your comment input form or as part of a web application that allows entry of user-generated and formatted content. Rich-text editors are essentially web-based WYSIWYG (“what you see is what you get”) editors. There are many rich-text editors out there. What’s even better than a lot of choices? Many of the best rich-text editors currently in the market are free. 20 Excellent Free Rich-Text Editors
Overview WYMeditor is a web-based WYSIWYM (What You See Is What You Mean) XHTML editor (not WYSIWYG). WYMeditor's main concept is to leave details of the document's visual layout, and to concentrate on its structure and meaning, while trying to give the user as much comfort as possible (at least as WYSIWYG editors). WYMeditor has been created to generate perfectly structured XHTML strict code, to conform to the W3C XHTML specifications and to facilitate further processing by modern applications.

Lightweight markup languages are used in applications where people might be expected to read the document source as well as the rendered output. For instance, a person downloading a software library might prefer to read the documentation in a text editor rather than a web browser. Another application is for entry in web-based publishing, such as weblogs and wikis, where the input interface is a simple text box. Lightweight markup language
Markdown is a plain text formatting syntax designed so that it can optionally be converted to HTML using a tool by the same name. Markdown is popularly used as format for readme files, or for writing messages in online discussion forums, or in text editors for the quick creation of rich text documents. History The Markdown language was created in 2004 by John Gruber with substantial contributions from Aaron Swartz, with the goal of allowing people “to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, and optionally convert it to structurally valid XHTML (or HTML)”.

Bug 329528 – Support Markdown in WikiText
Macchiato : encore un éditeur Markdown pour Mac Espresso, Chocolat et maintenant Macchiato : les développeurs d'éditeurs de texte / code sont visiblement inspirés quand vient le moment de nommer leur application. Macchiato [1.1 - 1,3 Mo - 15,99 €] n'est cependant un concurrent ni d'Espresso ni de Chocolat : il vient plutôt ferrailler dans un marché en plein développement sur Mac, celui des éditeurs en texte brut minimalistes compatibles Markdown — comme Byword ou iA Writer. Sorti il y a quelques jours, Macchiato se rapproche de Byword par son interface dépouillée, et sa mise en valeur subtile du Markdown.
