I have a half completed plugin that (if completed) would allow Kupu to 
be used as an editor in a dynamic Forrest site. I hit a few problems and 
ended up using htmlArea instead. More because I needed a solution fast 
and htmlArea was easier to set up.

Over at Cocoon there is a component to tidy the output of htmlArea, I've 
not played with this yet (see 
). I also want to customise the editor so that it only allows valid 
styles from our CSS.

It would be great if you could work with one of these plugins (I can 
provide the unfinished Kupu one for you if you want to go that route).

I will shortly be creating a plugin that uses the authentication block 
from Cocoon, we could use that (should be complete within a week or so).

We intend to support html so we can make sure that the output is OK. 
Having said that Cocoon is using the htmlArea widget and we already have 
  a skeleton plugin for that so it may be better to stick with it.

If there are would they be addressed by using the Authentication block 
from Cocoon?
