Second the kudos for the WYSIWYG API -- it's also worth noting that when 
using both Tiny and FCK, the WYSIWYG API offers an option to have the 
default paste clean up formatting. This simplifies things for the end user.

This, in combination with the work on Filefield inserts, actually makes 
for a WYSIWYG experience that approaches something that will satisfy end 
users without horrifying developers.

And, fwiw, I am no fan of text editors. But I am a fan of meeting client 
expectations. The WYSIWYG API offers the hope that these will not always 
be mutually exclusive attitudes.
