I think my choice of words might not have been the best. I'll try to
clarify my opinion:

What I meant is, you should be able to have the rich text editor without
the accompanying controls (like make bold, copy, etc).
There should be methods on the HTMLEditor class for making the selected
text bold, hyperlink, copy, etc like what exists now for the class
TextInputControl. Than you could create whatever controls you'd like, and
place them wherever you want, and call the methods on the HTMLEditor to
perform the mentioned actions.

Also shouldn't HTMLEditor be a subclass of TextInputControl?

Cheers, thanks
