Comment (by azaozz):

 Maybe even better if there is some help for the Text editor:

  The Text mode allows you to enter most HTML along with your post text.
 Note that <p> and <br> tags are converted to line breaks when switching to
 the Text editor to make it less cluttered.  When you type, a single line
 break can be used instead of typing <br>, and two line breaks instead of
 paragraph tags. The line breaks are converted back to tags in the Visual

 Will have to expand "WYSIWYG" too. Not sure how many people have ever
 heard that. Probably good if we can drop it completely.
