I've found that a number of WYSIWYG editors work much better in Internet
Explorer than say Firefox when doing a copy/paste from MS Word (2007).
Don't ask me why, it's just an observation.
There is and never shall be a perfect rich text editor, but that
shouldn't be a reason for not implementing a WYSIWYG editor. In fact I
don't know a single Drupal core module that is perfect but it hasn't
stopped us from loving Drupal. I believe the original point of this
thread was not a discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of an
RTE. Instead, the discussion is how best do we move forward in
implementing WYSIWYG in Drupal.
On a side note, I'm a huge fan of the WYSIWYG API (
http://drupal.org/project/wysiwyg ). Bravo to this project and others
in recently moving the third party code over to "|sites/all/libraries/"
|it should make future Drupal upgrades much easier to manage.
