ActivEdit WYSIWYG editor -- "Must Be Contained in Form" Error

ActivEdit is now an open source WYSIWYG editor. I had used this editor long time back while working on Coldfusion 4.5.

ActivEdit was Closed source sometime back, recently it's source code is made available(also ActivMail, a JAVA based CFX tag is also open source now). I like this editor as it is pretty simple and works, but is not as advanced with features as FCKEditor or TinyMCE.

The Latest version of ActivEdit, if your DOM structure is not proper(As below) then you will get an error "ActivEdit Must be contained in a form" and also you will NOT BE able to save any changes you make.

For AcitvEdit to work properly, you should have the following structure


The above issue will occur with Firefox 3, Safari and Google Chrome.
