Apparently the FCK people got a wikitext version of their editor.
I tested it, and this is just fantastic for all Mediawiki websites!!!
But it seems they had to change a couple of MW files to get it integrated, although it was mainly developped as an extension.
Could you MW people help them get that as 100% extension (without MW modification) ? I think it would help people getting involved in writing articles a lot!
Isn't this already in svn?
FCK is ok for simple pages, but it breaks pages with complex templates or extension usage. so it's useless for sites like wikipedia.
The entire concept of wysiwyg is problematic. I would much rather have working syntax highlighting.
Currently at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:FCKeditor_%28Official%29 although it's far from perfect yet.
