Rich text editing for HTML

I've been playing with LiveJournal and noticed they, too, have a rich text textarea widget. But when I tried the simplest thing that could possibly work:

        <title>Rich text?</title>
            <textarea rows="5" cols="20"></textarea>

It did not work. If I turn on the richtext feature of LiveJournal and paste in text I copy from a webpage which includes links, LiveJournal pastes the links as well as the text and formatting; with my sample page I just get plain text.

George Hotelling does write about this and points to Epoz project on SourceForge.

Sadly, there are no files to download in spite of the project claiming to be mature.

I just want to figure out how LiveJournal's rich text widget works.
