Forum OpenACS Q&A: Emacs and web browser text boxes
Btw, there has been some sort of WYSIWYG-style HTML editor supported in OpenACS for some time. I haven't tried it yet, as personally I like the non-WYSIWYG nature of HTML and similar markup styles.
Forums are nice as a record of a specific conversation. Email lists are better transport mechanisms for those conversations, I think.
I'd propose a solution, but you beat me to it in this message: http://www.openacs.org/forums/message-view?message_id=389793
And very nicely, too.
