We have developed a web based tools, which integrated a2WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML editor with SVG (scalable Vector Graphic) editor and mathematic equation editor. With modem DHTML feature of web browser, we create a WYSIWYG HTML editor in javascript. The HTML editor served as the base for our integrated tool. Mathematics equation was implemented with free java applets. Drawing and animation were implemented with SVG, It is currently used on our internet-based courses system by many science teachers. The tool bar interfaces make it attractive and easy to learn/use for new user. User can edit text, simple shape drawing, animated mathematics function plot, flow-chart and concept maps dynamically online with internet explorer. The document is saved in XML format. All the existing web components, e.g. java animation, video, sound ..., can be added to the document with drag and drop. Generated web page can be view with any standard web browser.
