I am currently working on a new sample application that will enable end-users to edit DOC and RTF files that reside on an HTTP server, using nothing more than their browser.

This sample application will use TX Text Control ActiveX Server server-side and will run in both Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla-based browsers (such as FireFox) client-side.

Basically, a document is loaded from the server, via HTTP, into an editor that runs in the browser. The document can be edited and then resubmitted to the server, upon which it is saved back to its original file format.

Many customers have asked me how to perform this seemingly simple operation, thus I took some time to figure it out.

I will publish a more detailed account when I am finished.
