[Pmwiki-users] WYSYWYG in PmWiki

So, like a java applet that allows the user to select
header levels, bullets, numbered lists etc, generates
the PMwiki markup and POSTs it to the edit script?

That doesn't sound too hard.  OTOH, there's something
to be said to make the user understand WTF they're
doing.  If any ol' idiot can post, any ol' idiot will
post, probably something idiotic.

I'm not against a minimal barrier to entry...
