My business depends heavily on rich HTML editing (https://qwilr.com) - and I can't begin to explain how much time and energy and engineering resource we've poured into trying to improve that experience, and make it reliable across browsers.

We had an enormous leg up in that effort - the guy who built the Google Wave editor helped us design and build the core of our editor; even so, its been this massive thorn in our side. Its been months and we still haven't gotten our custom editor out into production for all users (just a beta testing subset at this point).

I recognise of course the myriad competing forces for engineering time on the browser vendors ("implement X new shiny API!") - but O how I wish they would agree upon / build a rock solid content-editable experience.
