HOW TO generate a Word document dynamically with user submitted text formatted with Free Text Box

Driven by the questions that keep popping around my article "Dynamically generate a MS Word document using HTML & CSS" I've been finding new possibilities. My last experiment was about generating a Word document dynamically with user submitted text formatted with a rich text editor control like Free Text Box. By cross posting the formatted text to a separate Word file generation page the HTML content that makes up the Word document is cleaner.

When I was scouting for a rich text editor control, I found Free Text Box easy to use. It embeds all external files - CSS, Javascript & images into the DLL & the puppy is easy to handle. The free version of FreeTextBox allows basic HTML editing.

Some other free HTML text editor controls that have good cross browser support are:
