Subject Re: Switching to XHTML?

Yes, exactly.

All my users really prefer the WYSIZYG editor than to learn Wiki markup.
The current conversion from CK editor XHTML to JPSWiki markup will 
always remain clumsy because some concepts are missing (like end of 
paragraph within table cells).
Also, when justifying JSPWiki to other programmers / collaborators, 
perenial storage format is a very important argument.

Have a nice night!
