I have limited experience with FCKEditor --

and slightly more exp with tinymce --

but in my experience the better solution is to use textile -> & they are simpler
and then harder for users to break. TinyMCE imho
gives the user to many options and since most people are not good with
layout they often make a bigger mess than if you gave them something

+1 for Textile or Markdown (my preference) ... try looking up
rdiscount if you want to use Markdown, I'm sure there are better
options out there.
