    HTML Input Area

    Hello,

    I would like to create an input text area where users can create lists and format text without knowing html. When you create email in Yahoo!, you can change the size, color, style etc. of you font as well as make lists and the user sees what the end result will look like. This is what I would like to create.

    I am trying to create something where non-technical users can update a website with very basic outlines. The main features I need are the different types of lists (ordered/unordered, numbers, upper/lowercase letters, circle/dot, etc) but it would be nice to also add bold, italics, and underline as well. The outlines that they enter will be stored in a database and then displayed on a different page in the site. This is why I need their text to be formated in HTML.

    Can anyone show me how to do this, or point me to a place that will teach me how? I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    What your looking for is called "CMS" or Content Management System.

    There are a number of them out there, many of the ones that are free are MySQL and PHP based. So that's something to consider...
