[Moin-user] FCK Editor

For what it's worth, the GUI editor as far as I am concerned does not have to be some massively fancy WYSIWYG editor.  It should just be an easy way for non-technical users to contribute.  Fair enough the CSS should handle the markup, however, creating simple things like headings, paragraphs, lists, tables and inserting images should be the aim, hell it's not supposed to be a word processor.

I am happy to help gather data and set priorities if it will help, I can go to the level of list a bug with reporduction steps.

IMHO there is not that much that needs to be looked at to make the GUI editor usable, there are just some key areas which affect users.

Since I am no developer, how else can I help this process?

*shrugg* - I cant say if its easy to integrate. I also did not look how 
current fck is integrated. Maybe it would be cool to have editors as 
extensions to make it possible to use different editors. Drupal uses 
that technique: You download a original source of TinyMCE and then a 
Drupal package that binds that editor in. The problem with that is that 
the interface will be different on many installations. But one could 
install one editor on default.

What I could do is to collect some data of what works and what not based 
on what we already have - and then make or refactor a page where it is 
made clear what must be done to fix.

Personally I feel that the nix of two editors is ok if people are not 
depending on a GUI editor.
