Here's a comparison of modules that allow inlining of content using Wysiwyg. It lists modules mentioned in the "Joint community effort on embedding/inlining content and media" issue. I hope it can give some overview. Please review and edit or suggest changes.
groups.drupal.org doesn't really allow for wide tables, so I'm also attaching a html version.
table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

Modules supporting uploading images inline into WYSIWYG textareas.
If you are looking for more detailed reviews, check this wiki post
Must have (criterias):
- Must have a kind of a dialog to add it inline - so integrate with the WYSIWYG editor in kind of a way
Now that FileField and ImageField have stable releases (both 6.x-3.0), it's time to join forces and integrate ImageField with the WYSIWYG editors our clients love (need) so much. Some projects exist for Image and work very well, many of them plan to support/switch to ImageField at a later stage, and it's just difficult for me to decide which project to help. For you too ? Or are you involved in one of these modules ? Please help by editing this wiki page.

The WYSIWYG problem
The problem in allowing a Graphic User Interface editor to become What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get is that unless it is told the current CSS styling and the current CSS context then it is impossible for the editor to know what the end-result is supposed to look like. No matter how capable the editor is of being WYSIWYG it will fail unless it is supplied with enough information to know what styling it should be rendering, otherwise it is just a "pretty" editor and not a "WYSIWYG" editor.Read more
