One of the items we've received feedback on relative to the new site is the editing capability ... e.g., the requirement to use HTML to bold or italicize text.
In addition, some asked for the the ability to spell-check.
So, we recently implemented a new WYSIWYG editor on the site. Usage is fairly straight-forward - select the text and press one of the buttons at the top of the edit box.
In the unlikely case you would rather use a straight text edit box, you'll find a "Switch to plain text editor" link below the editor. Your choice.
Hope you find it useful.
Note: More changes/improvements to come ... :-)
