I've developed another approach.

My 'CMS' (I wouldn't call it so ;) uses a Java applet to change the content
of a page.

This applet is 'just' a xml editor (like XML Spy, with syntax highlighting,
code completion, information about the elements/attributes, right click for
special tags (e.g. you can upload, scale... your graphics), spell checking)
which supports schema.
If you click 'Save' you can see your webpage altered in your browser (the
applet is opened in another window).
The CMS is built on top of C2 and should work with all plugin enabled
browsers .

Well, that's not direct WYSIWYG as the MSIE/JS scripts does but works on
nearly all paltforms ;)

You can do simple edits on the text. Then when you click submit it will
roundtrip the html back to the original xml.  I have been making a wysiwig
editing system (that should work for cocoon too).  I started trying to do it
browser based (IE, using CONTENTEDITABLE) but have since moved to a swing
applet. Anyway maybe it can give someone some clues to make it happen in the
