[jifty-devel] a wiki editing toolbar

I'm making a toolbar to help in writing textarea fields 
(see http://www.crium.univ-metz.fr/docs/devel/jifty/toolbar.jpg )

I use a fragment to write the toolbar : 

<div id='toolbar' style='float:right;border:1px solid #ccc;'>
<script type='text/javascript'>
addButton('/static/img/js/h2.png','Heading 2','','\n-------\n','Heading 2');
addButton('/static/img/js/h3.png','Heading 3','### ',' ###\n','Heading 3');

# addButton : image, help text, first tag before selected text, last tag, default text if nothing is selected

see http://www.crium.univ-metz.fr/docs/devel/jifty/app.js
most of the code comes from wikibit.js (wikipedia) and seems to come from phpBB

good points is that it's easy to change the toolbar to add button, translate text, change tags, ...

but it's not usable in a jifty page region (javascript is cut off),
moreover I don't make test with IE and there's strange behavior with many textarea by page.

Do you want I put some elements (images, js, cookbook) in trunk ?  or somebody have a better tool ?
