[pmwiki-users] Pre-alpha rich text WYSIWTF editor

I'm quite happy without it. All users need is new paragraph, bold and
heading. Everything else is set by CSS. With consistency & presentation
becoming so important nowadays a WYSIWYG editor couldn't hope to emulate the
sophisticated demands of modern sites. I have just moved to PmWiki for this
very reason.

Using markup like


blah blah

is far easier for the user to supply the data for the html devices rather
than attempting to code it themselves and being wholly dissatisfied with the
results as shown in the html editor.

Incorporate a WYSIWYG if you must but let it be an option.

Many thanks for listening :)
