Even if I think a WYSIWYG editor could help, I (and problably many here
would agree) am against its use like it is used in other CMS, because
they generally convert to a bad and messy HTML, which make it difficult
to reuse elsewhere.

Rednotebook is using a trick I like the most: it's mixing the wiki
syntax (it remains educational for people so they can slowly learn the
code) with a wysiwyg-like display, so people understand better the code:

The wiki code is even greyed so it won't interfere too much with the
display, yet it remains visible.

It would be really useful for web forms, but I don't know how it can be
possible to implement this kind of display as an option.
