Your proposed solution looks like the perfect one. I downloaded CKEditor and extracted the Zipped files into the root folder of the Website in question. Then I tried following the instructions as written in http://docs.ckeditor.com/#!/guide/dev_installation but I’m not getting the desired results.
I copied (and adapted) the code listed there into my page but when I test the page at the local level either I get a second text-field-like window placed outside the page with some text written in it, or no changes at all.
I’ve looked for a solution on Google and I’ve found some threads about it, but still no clear explanation on how to make CKEditor work in DW.
Any suggestions on this?
Thank you for your attention.
