A great WYSIWYG Editor is FCKEditor, but there are
others. The editor should work as close to a word
processor as possible and should be truely WYSIWYG.
Well-known opensource wikis like MoinMoin and
MediaWiki are incorporating FCKEditor or something
like it in their next release.

A rich text editor can be a security risk and may
affect stability, so there should be options to turn
this on and off:
* global switch, e.g. in web,.config, to turh
off|enable|on.
* per-namespace swicth to off|enable|on
* per-page switch to turn it on|off

Features:
* The input should be WYSIWYG: no wiki markup, no
HTML markup.
* Should save the edits locally so that I do not lose
my work e.g. when I get disconnected on my wireless
LAN.
* Support all existing wiki formatting (tables,
bullets, headings, etc)
* Ability to insert another topic. This could show as
a <<inserted:TopicName>> for example. Clicking this
link should open that page in a new window.
* Ability to insert a WikiTalk macro. This could show
as a <<WikiTalk:MacroName>> or <<WikiTalk:Inline>>.
Clicking the link should open a new window that
allows the macro to be edited.
* A separate view, e.g. a tabbed view, to edit the
visible and invisible topic properties.
* Ability to insert visible topic properties into the
text.

    Vote++. Although I've implemented FlexWiki and find it usable enough, it's not seeing very high uptake because of the lack of a WYSIWYG editor.

    This is a great idea that lacks only a volunteer to put the time in to implement it.
