Midas html editor?


This message is the first I've heard of the midas editor.  Where 
can I find out more about this initiative? (I've been looking at but I can't find an overview of 
what the plan is).  I had assumed that if Mozilla wasn't to be 
developed further, that Composer would expire as well, and I 
would have to look elsewhere for an editor. Not so?

I'm very interested in finding a straightforward, no-frills 
wysiwyg HTML editor, mainly for sharing text files in HTML.  
NVu, so far, hasn't filled the bill.

I am using Mozilla Firefox [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; 
en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0)].

I was trying the midas demo available at:

If I type the following lines in the html compose area:
This is test line 1

This is test line 2

This is test line 3

This is test line 4

Then I select the 'View HTML Source' checkbox. 
Use the mouse to move the caret to '2' and press the backspace key.
I notice that the content being actually deleted is not where the 
cursor points. The deleted content is before the caret position.

Is this a known issue ? If so what is the bug number filed for it ?

Any help would be highly appreciated.
