This project is not complicated if you know what you're
I want created a very stable, basic, wysiwyg html editor
I want it done in Delphi and created so that it **does not
require installing any dll's on the computer of the person
using it**. It MUST strictly be a .exe file that resides on
I know this is possible because I have seen a program done
in delphi that operated exactly this way.
*** The best example of what I want - the FREE version of
Microsoft FrontPage Express that came with Windows 95/98. I
want something very similar with tweaked functionality!

It lets you copy and paste from Word and carried over text
formatting (bold, ital, underline, bullets, indent, justify
text left, center, right, etc.)
This software should allow all normal text formatting right
in the program so users can compose right in the program.
It should also allow html editing in a separate view.
Also, it should let you do tables, insert pictures,
horizontal lines, create web links to text and pictures
(including _blank, _self, _top, _parent options.) as well
as preview in your browser.
Attached is a picture of what I think the control bar
should look like - but again, remember FrontPage Express -
that's basically what I want.
Make sure it has is "find" and "Goto Line" functions in
the html view so can go to a specific line of html code.
When opening files, need to include .shtml and .asp for
Must switch back and forth between the normal and html
mode and pick up the changes made in html mode.
Must include "preview in default web browser" function
Must be able to control exactly the width of horizontal
lines. Should be able to highlight, right click, choose a
percentage or exact pixel width
Should have a "right mouse click" that activates a menu to
choose the major functions of the program or currnet
cut, copy, paste
Should have "insert bookmark" (anchor) function
Should have "status" bar at the bottom so it shows when
you pass the cursor over a hyperlinked object
If possible when switching between the normal and html
modes, want to have the cursor show up in the general area
of the html code as it is in the normal view.
Should offer ability to drag cell's borders left and right
to change the width of a cell.
Should allow you to insert tables, merge/delete cells,
change cell attributes, and manipulate tables fully.
Should be set up with a simple "splash" screen when the user starts the program up.
Will have a help file link to a web page, an about us link as well as all the menu options
