Reviews for this release

I haven't used much of it but it completely destroyed my tabcontainer! I had it set to a height and width which worked fine in the last release and now with the new release, height and width don't stop the darn thing from sizing dynamically! I really need the tabcontainer to size based on my specifications, not on the amount of data in the database. That is very annoying and I will be reverting!

Force focus on postback in HtmlEditorExtender is designed bad.

Hi, seems pretty stable. Like the new HTML editor tool. However, output does not validate correctly against XHTML 1.0 Transitional (i.e. upper case tags and uses obsolete font tag). Image support would be useful. HorizontalRule doesn't appear if you define your own toolbar
