I largely agree (I myself am perfectly used to crafting my own HTML and see no reason noobs can't likewise learn to walk uphill both ways in the snow :), but then I wonder if a markdown option of some sort might not help since everyone and their dog uses it for markup these days. If there were a toggle that defaulted on for new users (and/or you could twiddle per post) that might let the new, unwashed, markdown-accustomed masses contribute "more easily" while still allowing the power users / ancient fogeys to hand lathe their posts.

    I seem to recall someone (possibly ambrus) made something alone these lines years ago, some HTML/JavaScript wizardry that utilised the free nodelet or something. There are links elsewhere in this thread that will likely lead you down the correct rabbit hole.
