Maybe we can talk a little bit more about the editor linked by 0x.. seems really interesting: http://xing.github.com/wysihtml5/
Funny, I was thinking a lot about it.
The biggest battle is not using their user interface and retaining the current code, and I still think we'll have to deal with the HTML-BBC transition that we already have.
It could also be made smaller by using jQuery (since they're not)
Is BBcode support a priority?
I'd be happy without it at all. It seems like the modern way forward would be to have afull WYSIWYG editor that fell back to simple HTML. WSYIWG editing would be the default with a fall back to "view/edit" the source as HTML. Not only would the content be richer, but it would make it easier to cut and paste web clips or content from a full HTML editing application into the editing window.
b.t.w. Off Topic: I'm floored by the work you're doing here. I can't wait until wedge is ready for general use!
