WYSIWYG On Web Is Wrong

I know I have said this before, but WYSIWYG editor is a wrong solution for managing content on the Web. On the Web, we want content to be separated from its formatting, and WYSIWYG editors offer the exact opposite. Markdown, Textile, even WYSIWYM works well, but WYSIWYG editors are still the most user-friendly feature advertised by CMSs. And we still keep fixing whatever these editors break on the Web.

    I’ve found fckeditor 2 prtety nice to work with. I wish it produced XHTML-compatible HTML and structured it a bit better (use of p tags rather than quite so many br’s) but I guess I could probably do something about that if I just put the time in.

Say your thought!

If you want to use HTML you can use these tags: <a>, <em>, <strong>, <abbr>, <code>, <blockquote>. Closing the tags will be appreciated as this site uses valid XHTML.
