WYSIWYM (not just WYSIWYG) Editor #322

A WYSIWYM editor should be supported instead of a WYSIWYG editor because the former manipulates the markup language instead of generating a mess of HTML.

This means an editor that looks like a normal WYSIWYG editor, but instead of creating messy HTML, it edits the markup language and shows how it will look.

Perhaps WYMeditor can be adapted for this:

Or even, just interoperability with a web service editor already supporting pandoc flavor with real
time previous pane would be really nice in the meantime.

The following already has all these properties:
Try it at: http://markx.herokuapp.com/
Repository at: https://github.com/yoavram/markx for private web server installs.

We could even attempt to use gitit as backend instead of pandoc for the preview pane
so that plugins transformation are included as well in the preview pane.

Wow. That Markx is an excellent find! That would be fantastic to put right on the page when editing in Gitit's web interface. The engineers/devs can keep using git, and business people can have a form of a GUI.

I made a gitit + hallo.js + markdown integration once : it is quite easy to implement and the result is impressive.

Demo of hallo.js + markdown (without gitit) : http://hallojs.org/demo/markdown/

(it is very late there... thus i'll find & upload my code only tomorrow)
