      when I retrieve text from the server, I can view it inside of the
      text editor in its fully formatted state. What I'd like to do is display the multiple formatted text strings inside of muliple textareas without the editor visible or even present.

      In looking at the one editor multiple edit area example it seemed that I could place formatted text in an separate test textarea with the following code:

      document.getElementById("story-test").innerHTML = editor.get('element').value;

      However it doesn't place anything inside of the testarea id="story-test".

      editor has been instantiated simply as follows:
      editor = new YAHOO.widget.Editor("story",{handleSubmit: true});

      If anybody can provide some guidance, I'd appreciate it.

      Thanks,
      David

      To get the value from the Editor you have to call saveHTML(). This should work: document.getElementById( story-test ).innerHTML = editor.saveHTML() ... -- Dav

          In Fire 3.0.11 the textarea with id="story-test" displays a descriptive string ie "Test text for <strong><font style="color: #c00000;">bold text</font></strong>text...".  What I'd like to see is not the string but the formatted text itself.
           
          In IE7 I get a javascript error "Unknown runtime error".  Unfortunately I don't have a development environment installed in IE7 to provide any additional detail at the moment.  Can you recommend one?

          document.getElement ById("story- test").innerHTML = editor.saveHTML( )

              Well a little progress.  I get the same sting in IE7, but I still just get a text string instead of rendered HTML with Colored or Bolded text.  I reviewed the "one editor, multiple edit areas" demo.  It seems that when the editor is collapsed  the following sequence occurs:
              the texteditor is moved offscreen and the following lines are
              myEditor.saveHTML();
              editing.innerHTML = myEditor.get('element').value;
               
              (where the 'editing' variable has been assigned the <div> object which had previously been double clicked.)
              'editing' then displays the rendered text exactly as it appeared in the editor.
               
              Do I understand this correctly?  Any ideas why I am unable to display rendered text anywhere but in the text editor?
