Im just starting to use the codeIgniter framework and Im developing a blog application. However I need a textarea where the user can change text to bold or change the colour just by selecting it and clicking a button above the area.

Much like the daniweb reply form but I don't want the html or bb code to actually appear to the user.

Is there any name for this technique that I can google? Any opensource stuff? Software? Advice on how to start coding it?

Seriously, anything would be helpfull haha!

Many thanks :)
