WYSIWYG if you're lucky
I’ve installed a rich text editor on a trial basis, which will make it easier for registered contributors to add moderate formatting to their work.
For example, you can use the indent button to format a paragraph as a block quote with a pale blue background.
It only works with up-to-date versions of IE and Mozilla. If you use another browser, you should see the standard text box as before. If it doesn’t work for you or is too slow or you just don’t like it, go to my account in the right menu, select edit, and disable the rich text editor option.
If you use the RTF editor, you should choose the ‘HTML with <p> and <br> for linebreaks’ input format below the text box.
