I am creating a simple webpage creation tool for children, and want them to be able to highlight a word and add a link to that word (Using a popup window or something).

Someone has already suggested that i add the "HTML tags" into the text, but this would be confusing for the children, so is it possible to have the "HTML tags" hidden from the used, but having the word a different colour to indicate there is a link (Just like MS Frontpage)?

I guess that i can't just use a normal text box for this?

This is for my final year project at Brighton University, UK, and will include anyone that helps me in my acknowledgment.

Thanks Chris Groves
