Ekit in Roller

We have permission to distribute the Ekit HTML Editor applet from hexidec.com with Roller.  Ekit is distributed under the GPL, so it cannot be used in commercial applications or even in non-GPL open source apps such as Roller.  Fortunately, Howard Kistler the author of Ekit has given us permission to distribute Ekit with Roller.  He is considering a switch to a less restrictive open source license.  

I will probably make Ekit optional because applets are fairly heavy and because, as Russell points out, applets don't support cut-and-paste from other apps.  Thanks to some JSP and JavaScript code from Russell, I've almost finished integrating Ekit into Roller's edit-weblog page.  Hopefully, I'll commit my changes later on today.
