Was FCKEditor suppose to be in CFMX7?

While researching some stuff for ICEGen, I was browsing through the XSL files used by the CFFORM and came across something interesting. Apparently there is a reference to FCKEditor in one of the files. In the file /CFIDE/scripts/xsl/basic.xsl there exists a comment on line 88:

commenting out the superfluous include reference to _fcktextarea.xsl for now.
Not sure what *samples/* folder we’re referencing. Since this file cannot be found it’s throughing errors.
–>
<!– <xsl:include href=”samples/_fcktextarea.xsl”/> –>

So apparently there was some sort of development going on to allow a richtext editor within CFMX7 at some point. Don’t know why they decided to pull the plug on it, but it’s fun to speculate. BTW it’s throwing not throughing😉

    It was supposed to be in CF7 and is going to be in CF8. It was pulled from 7 because they couldn’t get the bugs worked out in time for the release. Ben Forta mentioned this in one of more of his CFUG addresses, I think.
