Hi all,
current it is possible to include the editor via the_editor()
function, also an different scripts and works. But it is not possible
to add this function clear to meta boxes for posts or other
post_types, if has an editor. The problem is the javascript; the
editor buttons of the editor for switch html/visual has fixed IDs and
the script use this, thats is a great problem and if you switch on a
editor, also the other editor switch and the active button is not
you see this in editor.dev.js
var ed, qt = this.I('quicktags'), H = this.I('edButtonHTML'), P =
this.I('edButtonPreview'), ta = this.I(id);

if you will include the editor on a othe rpage, include css and
javascript (fast code on mail !!):
add_filter( 'admin_head', 'example_tmce' );
function example_tmce() {
	wp_enqueue_script( 'common' );
	wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery-color' );
	if (function_exists('add_thickbox')) add_thickbox();
	if (function_exists('wp_tiny_mce')) wp_tiny_mce();
$value = $this -> load_post_meta( $data->ID );
$id = 'fb_example_tmce';
the_editor($value['example_content'], $id, $prev_id = 'title',
$media_buttons = true, $tab_index = 4, $extended = true);

Best regards
