I've spent about 30 hours on a simple solution and I'm still not there. I finally figured out how to use the mx:RichTextEditor to allow users to take data from my database and edit it and put it back.
However, the formatted text that it returns doesn't work in a browser. It doesn't matter what size the text is, it will be GIANT in a browser.
Do I have to reinvent the wheel or is there a simple solution that I just can't find?
Please point me in the right direction. I just want my (novice) users to edit a text field from a database and have it displayed properly in a browser.
What does the text data look like and what does it look like on screen?
It looks good in the Rich Text control.
The output looks like this:
<TEXTFORMAT LEADING="2"><P ALIGN="CENTER"><FONT FACE="Arial" SIZE="8" COLOR="#990000" LETTERSPACING="0" KERNING="0"><B>Welcome to</B></FONT></P></TEXTFORMAT>
In a browser, "Welcome To" would be in about a 36 point font instead of 8.
Isn't this something that should be popular?
