Hi Again,

Just had a go playing around with the TinyMCE and FCK versions of the 
Inline Editor from Fluid Trunk.  The FCK one works great as well and I'm 
excited about it being a good transition for existing Sakai Deployments 
that have customized FCK Plugins and it just generally being used in all 
the tools.

Will these be in Fluid 0.6, or not until 0.7 ?
