5. Ability to edit without use of HTML

Some ppl don't know html and don't care to know html. Through use of things like structured text (similar to wiki shortcuts) editors can bold, underline, etc using *'s, _'s and the like. This, in fact, should be encouraged as it translates well copied directly into ASCII text documents/email, etc.

How this product meets the need

STX (structured text) is already implemented in this system and is in use. This allows for formatting of documents without the direct use of html.
