Reviews for this release

This is a very well-written, elegant solution. Only problems I encountered was that it lacked a [assembly:CLSCompliant(true)] attribute in HtmlEditor.cs that was easy to fix and, when I included on a page, the following toolbar items were missing: Text Color, BG Color, subscript, superscript, hyperlink and image. I haven't found a fix for the second problem yet. After I do, I will $donate.
