Morning all.

Ted, although 1st page 2 is great, it is a HTML editor, not A WYSIWYG. It
has preview mode, but for someone who doesn't know HTML, its not going to be
of much help.

I would suggest going to Tucows.com and seeing what they have to offer. They
have various sections for editors (text, beginner, advanced), and most of
the beginner editors are WYSIWYG.

Shawn's suggestion would work well, depending on what type of page they
have. If they are just updating listings, then I would go with Shawn's idea.
If not then it'd be a bit harder to update and format properly.

Sites to look for editors:

http://www.zdnet.com/downloads/
http://download.cnet.com/downloads/
