Rich Text Editor & Textblock
Create a rich text editor and TextBlock capable of formatting and displaying text in bold, italics, underline, inline images, ordered lists, unordered lists, etc.
I hear data binding is popular in Silverlight.
A RTE (Rich Text Editor) having goodness of both flow layout as well as default. Also, most desirable is wraparound text around images just like HTML content. In WPF it is achievable; wish similar stuff in SL

The RTA needs to have the ability to apply Styles to the Block (e.g. paragraph) and Inlines (run, hyperlink). So that runs inherit from paragraphs, unless particular properities are over ridden and paragraphs inherit from the RTA, unless over ridden. This is a must have in SL4.

It would be nice to have a serializer that can be used to save and reload the contents of the RichTextExitor.
A better way then wpf richtextbox to import and export formatted text to store in database would be helpful.
I hope you are not going to release Silverlight 4 without BaseLineAlignment property.
Today at the PDC Scott Guthrie showed a nice rich text editor for Silverlight 4. Fills a big need.
What we need a rich text editor with *full* copy and paste support from Word.
Plus a documented workaround to use it in
- SharePoint 2010
- CRM 5
- TFS Web Access 2010
FlowDocument would work for me.

Please let we create my material in word and display it in SL

We need a rich text editor with Full copy & paste support from MS Office to roll-out our Silverlight knowledge management system. The key is that cut & paste must work and the in editor rich text controls (Bullet, underline, Bold ,etc) should work after pasting.
Having this feature in the product definitely gives lots of advantage to customer in media industry. Functionality such as, export/import RTF, spell check, complete rich text, highlighting, events in the text etc.

I will want to use it for sure!
We need a Rich Text Editor: Means for displaying, creating and editing text in the formats HTML, RTF and XPS/XAML. It also must be possible to drag/drop and cut/copy/paste text and rich media (at least images) from outside. That might be difficult, but it would give Silverlight a big leap forward, because forum software will maybe start to use it at least optionally for that one feature alone, as until now, users are still forced to link images from external sites or upload them tediously as attachments.

Isnt this feature a part of this one? http://silverlight.uservoice.com/pages/4325-feature-suggestions/suggestions/306140-add-a-professional-text-rendering-engine?ref=comments
Need full featured load, edit, display, store RTF for blog posts , news posts and the like to be compatible with what is offered and used on other websites.

I think this feature should be based on advanced text rendering, which is also asked here:
Yes I do. And you can easly use this for formating from code...
I think you are really talking about Flow Documents?
TextBlock allready has a formating support. So you can format text with color, bold,italic,superscript,subscript,.....
