I`m currently working with categories in ExpressionEngine and facing the problem that i missing some kind of WYSIWYG editor.

An search on Devot:ee gives me no result.

Is there an solution or an fieldtype that add an WYSIWYG editor to an category description field?

Cheers, Rein

There are also some hacks to shoehorn wygwam (and possibly others) into the category description field. http://ellislab.com/forums/viewthread/219408/
