Brian Alvey built the rich text editor for his CMS used on A List Apart 
and Weblogs, Inc. By his own admission though, it's "almost" right, but 
not quite there. I think it produces valid HTML, but no CMS or RTF 
editor will stop a user from linking "click here" or another 
equally-meaningless phrase. Education of your Content Producers seems to 
be the strongest approach. Good luck in your search.
