I meant to clarify that this WYSIWYG editor is an HTML editor and, as it 
is currently used, allows all sorts of nasty mixing of content and style 
information. It is my intention that this will be modified to only allow 
styles in our CSS and legal markup (i.e. <em> and <strong>).

Once we move our intermediate format to XHTML this editor will come into 
its own.
