    I don't know of an easy way to disable the html editor. I'm sure it is possible but it strikes me as a major project.

    Hello all,

    Shane did you have any success disabling the HTML editor?

    I havent disabled the text editor but i have installed a much improved version via the plugin WP Advanced Code Editor. The plugin allowed me to fully edit a page of tables i have been struggling with for a few days. And don't mention linguistic differences between US 'center' and UK 'centre' which confused me for a while.

    add_filter( 'wp_default_editor', create_function('', 'return "tinymce";') );
    add_action( 'admin_head', 'my_css_4_admin' );
    function my_css_4_admin() {
    	echo '<style type="text/css">#editor-toolbar #edButtonHTML, #quicktags {display: none;}</style>' . "\n";

    Thats works or you use the plugin Adminimize

    the html editor is enabled/disabled on a per user basis.

    go to users, select the one you want to edit and you'll see a check box at the top of the page that asks if you want the html editor or not.
