From the developer:
"ActivEdit is a browser-based WYSIWYG editor for content management developers. It embeds into an HTML form, like a textarea might. Activedit takes in a couple of attributes, such as name, the name of the form field that will store the HTML contents when you click submit. You pass these attributes, to Activedit via a Cold ASP component interface, which is a lot like calling a function, if you are familiar with other programming languages. Activedit uses a combination of ASP, Java Script, dHTML, and ActiveX to display the control on the web page. You can pass attributes that can change the color, size, or visibility of almost every object that the control uses. It uses the IE DHTMLEdit (DHTMLSafe) MSHTML Editor."
