WordPress 2.51 TinyMCE Visual Editor Working!
I finally traced a fix for the problem.
After much tedious searching through the forums, I got a fix that worked after uploading all the WordPress files umpteen times as per the usual advices.

This is a slightly more in depth description of how to the edit suggested by azaozz in http://wordpress.org/support/topic/165449?replies=43
The fix is a simple one – I didn’t bother with the zipped php file. Just edit this config file:
‘compress’ => true,
Then change it to read:
‘compress’ => false,
My visual editor, at least, works now – which makes me quite glad after all the fannying around today.
