Just one particular content editor. So the user's permissions will still apply (i.e. they are not an editor so typically cannot edit) but will still have access to a content editor's rich editing features for one particular control.

Can you elaborate your question a little further. Its rather confusing in the current state. – Arko D Jul 9 '12 at 14:42
Well this is a scenario were we'd probably typically use a 3rd party wysiwyg editor (ckeditor) for example - but want to use the SharePoint one. In a nutshell - how can I use content editor as a wysiwyg editor for users that are not even contributors? – JᴀʏMᴇᴇ Jul 9 '12 at 14:51

I'm not sure if this will help you, but you can use the RTE without the ribbon controls. We have a public facing site and didn't want to use the ribbon for general users.
