There is the wonderful Dillinger editor. One can edit markdown, share the changes with Operational Transforms and display the HTML. This is what dillinger does. It is even easier because there is a single shared server per focument.
Editing Rich Text Documents is much harder. There is a range of text in the string that is bold, and two people making changes to that all hell breaks loose. You need a hierarchical model of a document. So that they are both editing the same bold section, just changing the text string, then it all works. Until one person edits a word, and the other deletes the paragraph.
