Hello Myron, Pierre,

I have been using the editor now for a few days and have written and
edited (together with my non-technical inner circle) a number of pages,
together with uploaading images and files. All goes well, there are a
number of icons/options that don't function optimally (yet :-) ?).
Somehow the editor has to much possibilities for what we need in
dokuwiki. Maybe we need a discussion about relevant options.
But the bottom line is: I am very glad about the editor. It is
efficient, does not disturb non-technical users used to Word etc. I used
it with firefox and IE versions 6 and 7. It works fine, including the
image uploading and inserting.There may still be a lot of technical
fuss, but I see this as a significant advantage for dokuwiki. Thank you
for your work!
