Okay so i followed a tutorial on how to create a wysiwyg rich text editor. The script has a function that makes it possible to take an image uploaded on an another site and use it. What i want though is to let the user upload an image directly into the text editor. Is there a way to do that in javascript? and if so, can you guys please help me write it, cause i can't find anything on the web about it... ?

btw, is it possible to write a function that allows the user to show a video from youtube just by entering the url address?

<div id="content">

<body onLoad="iFrameOn();">

<h1>Create a New Guide</h1>
<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="add_guide.php">
<h3>Guide Name <input name="guide" type="text" id="guide" size="50" maxlength="50" /></h3>
<select name="class">
<option value="0">None</option>
<option value="1">Scout</option>
<option value="2">Soldier</option>
<option value="3">Pyro</option>
<option value="4">Demoman</option>
<option value="5">Heavy</option>
<option value="6">Engineer</option>
<option value="7">Medic</option>
<option value="8">Sniper</option>
<option value="9"selected="selected">Spy</option>
