#481: Live syntax highlighting

 Bloodhound currently uses previews to show users what their wiki text will
 look like after submitting. This proposal is to introduce live syntax
 highlighting instead, similar to how [http://www.iawriter.com/writer-for-
 mac-guide.html#markdown iA Writer] does it, which is an excellent writing
 application.

 The idea here is to not overload the interface with WYSIWYG control
 elements and encouraging users to fine tune every element of their text
 design (and thereby making it more difficult to show a coherent,
 immediately recognisable style throughout the application).

 Bloodhound is not a text editing or document design application. It should
 provide powerful formatting to refer to objects as TracLinks do, and basic
 styling that allows them to highlight important elements, show hierarchies
 and differentiate something from the norm. Live code highlighting would be
 useful along the same lines.
