There are a lot of really great controls in the ASP.Net AJAX Control Toolkit.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with the toolkit, it is an open source project that is built on top of the Microsoft ASP.Net AJAX framework (the framework was formerly known by its code-name: Atlas).  It contains over 40 controls that you can use to build highly responsive and interactive Ajax-enabled Web applications.  It is a joint effort between Microsoft and the development community.

Today, I’m going to talk about one of the controls specifically.  The HTMLEditor control.  This control allows you to create and edit html content directly from within your browser.  There are a lot of toolbar buttons available, and you can edit your content using the WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) pane or the html text pane, and view the results using the Preview pane.
