Comments on formatting:

I think there should be some way to insert a
tag without using HTML-Mode. <h[1-6]> tags would be quite nice, too. -- Anonymous Coward

I'm considering a "safe HTML" subset option, although I'm unlikely to make it the default. Personally, I like the simple text subset, but I can see that some sites would like more markup without allowing full HTML. --CliffordAdams [P.S. Thanks to the anonymous contributor who fixed the examples above. I hadn't realized that I could quote a "nowiki" tag.]

How about a <tab> tag where the tab character is displayed as the tab!
