Using Amazon Web Services with TCache and the Rich Text editor

The code of this example is identical to any one for persistence in files that you can find here except the procedure  amazonSDBpersist that set the default persistence in Amazon simpleDB. It also shows how to edit HTML online with htmlEdit primitive, that creates a rich text editor out of a text input form. In this case, it is configured with bold and italic controls.

Here is the permanent link for the running example (This page)

It also shows how to edit HTML with htmlEdit. It is a widget modifier that convert an input box or a  text box into a rich text editor 

Running example

(in the light red box):

Insert the text
