Ideally, editing in the box itself would provide everything expected.

I've never used the Text Editor, I thought it was just for copy-n- 
paste.  I was asking to see if there were other reasons for it.  Seems  
like there are.  Anyone want to take on implementing a better text  
editor function?  I'd just copy-n-paste the old code.

annoying for sure.
