I need a control that will allow the user to do the basics: bold, italic, underline, strikeout, indenting, bullet points, images, hyperlinks, copy and paste change font and colors and thats about it. Nice to haves would be undo/redo, smilies, preview and paragraph alignment.
There are some really good controls out there (such as this one from Telerik), but the good ones cost money - serious money. The telerik control is US$395! I've got two websites I want to use the control in - initially just once on each site, and US$395 seems a little over the top - particularly given neither of these stiesa are businesses which will give a ROI. It makes the US$795 control kit (with 18 controls in it) look really attractive.
So what do other peolpe do? Do you fork out or make do with second rate stuff? Is there a good and reasonably priced control out there that I can get hold of that anyone knows about?

Have you looked at FCKEditor? It's an open source control that we use.

did you try FCKeditor? I was in the team that developed it.
If you need any help with it just ask
The url for FCKeditor is: http://www.fckeditor.net/

Lately I like FCKEditor the best.
I use fckeditor in nblogr etc.
I would even choose it over the radeditor of telerik.
there is also freetextbox but that only works good on IE
Then there is tinyMCE http://tinymce.moxiecode.net
(url might be wrong)

I recently used FreeTextbox on a small sports club home-made-CMS site and I found that it works realy well and was very easy to implement.

fckeditor.net is the best

Did you ever implement a rich text control for ASP.Net 2.0?
If so, which one did you use?
Also, have you ever used a spell checker component?
