HTML Editor in a Windows Forms Application

Question :

HTML Editor in a Windows Forms Application,

Answer :

We are looking for a WYSIWYG editor control for our windows application ( or c#) so that users can design HTML emails (to send using the SMTP objects in the dot net framework) before sending.

Currently all the available editors we can find have one of the following issues:

  1. They rely on mshtml.dll or the web browser control which as proven for us to be unreliable as the HTML code and the editor get out of sync under windows 2000 (IE6)
  2. They are web-based, not a windows form control
  3. They place styles in the head of the document (see note below)

Unfortunately, as this descries the only sure way of making HTML emails to work with styles is to use them inline which now seems to be unsupported in many editors.

Does anyone have any experience in this or could suggest a solution?
