Finding a good editor plugin is a chore... several exist for Drupal 6,
Drupal 7 now has it's builtin version. What I like on our website is
that you can disable "rich-text" to enter html directly to the page,
like you would want to do with a youtube embedded video html script or
google calendar, then switch it back on. I can do this on our hosted
site, but not on my own. Much more study time ... at least I know it can
be done. Drupal can be work for the admin! :) Ric
