The way I see it, it could work this way:

* We have tabs (or something) for "Compose" and "Edit HTML" just like 
Blogger does.

* Bold, Italic, Hyperlink, Insert Image, Various Text-aligns, Hx, UL and 
OL. Possibly even spell checker if possible. No Java of course.

* "Insert Image" is something I'd like to discuss further at some point, 
because IMHO it should in some way be married to "Upload". One way could 
be to have an "Upload file" link somewhere on the write page, that 
opened in a popup window (I think a popup could be appropriate here). 
Another could be to have an almost "wizard" like step by step image 
uploading widget, that would even generate HTML code for you. Perfect 
for the WYSIWYG editor.

Of couse not all this would be necessary, but I honestly think that even 
the simplest WYSIWYG (Hx headers, bold, italic) would be awesome. That 
is, of course, if the programmers are willing to / can do this.
