[NBLUG/talk] Open Source Java applet for HTML editing

What I want is a replacement for the <TextArea> on a Web page that has 
the HTML, Java based editor.  This will be running on a Linux server.  
The user will then be able to create HTML based emails (that is what my 
client is asking for) and then send the emails to all people on the Php 
emailer I have created using a MySQL DB.

The demo I have at has this, but 
it is in JavaScript and has to have IE.  For my client to install Java 
is not a problem, or so he says.
