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.
