What's the best HTML WYSISYG editor available to web developers and why?
I'm partial to TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor due to the following reasons:
Easy to use - just a couple lines of code and a textarea and the control is up and running.
Easily themed - so I can quickly make it look like the site in which it is being used
Most importantly - easily customized to show/hide particular buttons depending on my application needs
FCKeditor, available at http://www.fckeditor.net/, is great because it is compatible with all major browsers including Safari. Most HTML rich text editors don't support Safari.

TinyMCE is great because its very easy to customise and to write plugins for.
It's also been around for a while so there are plenty of resources and help available for it.
If you're talking about editing components (as opposed to stand-alone apps like DreamWeaver) I've used CuteEditor, TinyMCE, FCKEditor, eWebEditPro, and Telerik's RAD Editor. They all have thier plusses and minuses, and you have to get used to their way of seeing the world. The HTML they spit out varies greatly, and I find I frequently have to tweak the results.
I use TinyMCE in my projects. I did my research quite some time ago, but am still happy:
- filters MS Word HTML better
- has less files than FCKe :)
- has a free adaptation of FCKe plugins for advanced file and image manipulation, tinymcpuk
