WYSIWYG editor added to WordPress

I've finally found a WYSIWYG plugin for WordPress 1.6 that will give us something like Blogger's editing and preview function. It also adds an image upload utility, which is damned handy. Here's the plugin (click on the image for an example).

If you don't know, WYSIWYG = What you see is what you get. Like Microsoft Word.

WordPress 1.6 will include a full WYSIWYG editor straight out of the box - example here. Very cool. One of the big problems with blogging and wiki software (such as MediaWiki powering TopSpin) is the level of HTML knowledge required. Once that hurdle is cleared, expect many more people to start publishing their own content online.

I think I've told Zen, use w.bloggar. It's an unbelievable tool for managing posts, etc.

yeah but

(1) I blog from multiple computers, operating systems and sites, don't carry a laptop with me.

(2) we're upgrading to WP1.6 as soon as it comes out, and the plugin i've installed uses TinyMCE, the same WYSIWYG javascript as used in WP1.6.

I will install w.bloggar for my home PC though.
