High performance text component

I'm very interested in a Rich Text component, too. We have a client being quite heavy on WebViews, which could be replaced by a RichText display (no editor needed).
This would most certainly speed things up.

Hi Felipe, can you estimate an ETA for this?

I am looking basically for this:
A rectangular area that displays chars, and for each single char one could potentially chose a unique font, color, size, style (italic, bold, underlined, overlined, striked through, combinations of all)?

What do you mean by “rich text editor”?
Is it more something like a Wordpad-like component?
With buttons for cut/copy/paste etc.?
