Yes about the 98% of web user i suppose. The idea to have something
like a visual editor large than screen resolution it's quite funny.
It's true that RTE is not really a WYSYWYG editor but sometime i
though that the correct width for that text area should be the width
of the content area in the current used theme whith a top walue for
that full fluid theme (that i hate), this would be a really help
wrintig post cause u can see if an image it's to wide or the text flow
areound it will rend with 4 chars per line etc. Unfortunatly the
render area of a post in a heme has not a predefined class or id so
would be hard to implement.
