The HTML editors listed here are all open source. If you're a developer, you can download any of these editors from the website of the respective editor. Otherwise you can go ahead and generate HTML for your own project!
TinyMCE is an open source WYSIWYG editor. The toolbar includes dropdown menus that are reminiscent of desktop applications. This could make it a front-runner choice for users who are not necessarily tech-savvy.
CKEditor is another online WYSIWYG editor that can be plugged into any web project. Although it doesn't include the dropdown menus that TinyMCE does, it is still very user-friendly. The "Paste from Word" feature could make it the "go to" editor for users in corporate world.
This is the full-featured version of CKEditor. It provides a lot more options on the toolbar. Handy if the standard toolbar is not enough.
This is a classic version of CKEditor. CKEditor 3.4 to be precise. This may be of interest if you have any browser compatibility issues with the more modern editors.
If you're an end user, you can use the above HTML editors to generate HTML code for your own website, blog, email newsletter, etc. You can do this right here on this website, then copy the code over to your own site when you're done.
If you're a developer, you can choose from these options to provide WYSIWYG editor for your end users. For example, provide a content management system for staff to update the corporate website or intranet.
