Includes advanced Image/Media, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.
I'm not sure if this is a JCE problem or a Safari problem (actually, it doesn't work in OmniWeb either). I use Firefox when editing my page (it works fine with JCE), but Safari is a much more elegant browser (IMHO). I'd love to be able to use it (or OmniWeb) instead.
I would even propose it replace TinyMCE as the default Joomla editor. It basically removes the need for Image lists and mosimage tags, has a wonderful plugin for flash content and does everything you might want to do in content from the editor.
Most annoying is the embed media functionality that... simply doesn't work. Not only it doesn't work, but if you want to embed a video typing the HTML code manually, JCE will just strip out your custom code! I had to revert to the non wysiwyg editor to embed the videos in my content!
Neither you can create pop-up window links as some other free editors do.
The image browser is good, but it doesn't let you browse the whole site. You're limited to the Joomla image/stories folder. It would be better to have access to the whole site structure, at least if you are administrator or super administrator.
Despite these few negative points, JCE work well. Apart the embed video problem, I haven't noticed any other major bug. It's also quite fast and efficient.
If you mostly use text + images content on your site, JCE will do the job nicely. If you have more complex content, or want to add some custom code and JCE doesn't like it, you may become frustrated.
JCE has a Media Manager plugin that helps with inserting media.
Following the release of 1.1.0 'stable', the Media Manager SE will be available, with the ability to insert FLV files.
The layout and features in JCE are far superior. Even the simple "Paste as plain text" feature was not in the HTML Suite.
If you are thinking about whether to get JCE or HTML Suite then trust me - pick JCE, it is a far superior product.
Due to the incredible poor competition of good editors this one still is the best out there. Beats a lot of payed versions.
But, don't think that it will solve all your problems
FANTASTIC! Thanks Dev - I have sent you a cyber-beer in a virtual frosty glass!
Only thing I noticed and this may be fixed by now or I just don't have something set correctly is that empty tables get stripped out for some reason. But that is a MINOR problem so overall this is the editor to use if you're thinking about giving it a try!
J C E is the very best Editor by far the image manager is fantastic allowing you to edit images and pop ups and resise your images.
The tables are excellent and easy to use,I could not recomend a better editor.
I have contacted Ryan on a couple of issues and the back up is excellent.
the $20 membership fee is well worth the money.
A very happy J C E user.

A minor problem I noticed -- after getting the admin.mambot (google for "Restricted access JCE" and you'll find the fix; a link to it can be found in the forum for this add-on) fix in -- is that when I was editing a post I made with the TinyMCE editor, everything was centre-aligned, and had to align everything left again. It was probably due to some minor thing like the code written by tinymce and jce's editing.
Now if only these things were 100% standards compliant, I would recommend them totally. Thankfully the authors of these editors are paying attention to this sort of thing now, and are either 100%, or getting there.
Finally, JCE is probably one of the better ones out there, so yeah, if you want to use one of these, this is OK :).
