Frustrating Afternoon/Evening

In my previous post I said that I would use this blog site as my guinea pig in my quest to hone my Drupal skills.  

First on my agenda was to install a text editor so users can do some styling to their posts.  I chose CKEditor at the editor and got it installed easily enough and tested it.  All was good until I attempted to add a comment to a test post.  The comment window had a grey color to it and when I typed, no text would appear.  

First Post

I am a new Drupal Developer having worked with Drupal for over 1 1/2 years. Drupal is a CMS platform that has a lot of complexity to it. After being laid off over a month ago I have decided to pursue Web Development as a new career. I have read that there is a lot of demand for Drupal Developers so it sounds like a good field to get involved with, I feel pretty comfortable with the basics of the Framework (I went to a workshop and was told emphatically that Drupal IS a Framework) but when it comes to the finer points I am definitely lacking.
