For users who want wysiwyg clients, OpenOffice is a good place to
start. In place WebDAV editing should be very possible with it (if
it's not been done by now, it would make a good project for
someone). Plus the Oo file format is good, today, and will get better.
The pain is mainly explaining to folks how little programs can do
with, and how easily they break against, unstructured text. After
that it's the little matter of explaining why a tag like <p> is
sometimes holding less information that the program needs. Stuff
like roundtripping we can test for ;)
