What makes it so special as compared to other WYSIWYG Editors?

There are many other WYSIWYG editors that try to achieve almost all the heavy functions of a Word Processor. This results in a complicated interface that loads slowly and requires long loading time. The WYSIWYG Editor used in PHPKB software has been designed specifically for the web by keeping it simple and quick to load, while being powerful enough to create stylish content.

The WYSIWYG Editor provides essential HTML editing functionalities with total control of the styles. It is a cross-browser, 100% javascript based HTML editor that provide a full-featured word processor for authoring and publishing your knowledge base content and produces 100% valid XHTML code for your knowledge base articles.

Re-Use Content from Microsoft Word
Paste from Word

There is no need to re-type existing content. Using the bulilt-in paste content from MS Office feature of the editor, you can easily re-use content from existing documents, reports, articles and guides created in Microsoft Word. Content from Microsoft Word is stripped of unnecessary Word-related tags, and looks identical to how it did in Microsoft Word.
