Huge javascript:

   ta = document.getElementById('edit-body');
   ta.setAttribute('...', '...');
   toolbar = document.createElement('div');

What is the purpose? You are about to add quicktags editors above all 
textareas, right? Are you about to add the HTML tags for those toolbars 
above all textareas literally into the HTML code, to avoid 'bloated HUGE 
javascript'? If you add it once, and are not doing to bloat the HTML 
code, you still need to move and/or copy around as needed with 
JavaScript, which still need the same procedure as above. If you add one 
instance, then the createElement will be replaced with getElementById,
