Try out whether this one works... It might be my implementation problem.

I managed to do a small edit, but it died when I tried to do a bigger edit.

I didn't understand.
Does that mean that is not compatible with browsers with no javascript?
Does that mean that is not compatible with the way mobile phones execute javascript?

w3c advises web programmers not to use <noscript>.
It does exist in HTML5 but does not exist in xHTML (all versions).

3.1 does use HTML5 ;) But I've had no validation errors with XHTML 1.0 Strict with the noscript tag and phpBB uses it with the quick reply with 3.0 anyway.

<noscript> is a horrific tag and I would strongly advise against the use of it. You should have something like a div which is shown by default and is enabled by JavaScript, or you should have a .nojs CSS class which is removed by JavaScript (it's very easy with jQuery).

A little bit off topic, but let me ask few questions:
  • Could you let me know on what phone did you test it (and in what browser)? What software is it running (name & version number - Android / iOS)?
  • What page exactly did you check? Do you have the same result with the nightly build?
(please answer via PM is possible, to avoid stealing the topic for tracing this single issue)

Note that mobile devices are quite problematic. People see that the plain textarea is replaced with wysiwyg and assume that it works. The problem is that many times the contenteditable area is so buggy, e.g. when it comes to text selection, placing the caret etc. that it really does not make sense to "enable" CKEditor on them.
