I didn't understand it as a "decision" exactly, but everyone I heard
speak about it at the meeting expressed support.  It was mentioned that
some people had had difficulty with the wiki, and I'd like to understand
that and see if we can address it.

There's a list of WYSIWYG editing solutions for mediawiki here (none of
which are considered to be totally awesome):


...and so far, I'd say the first one looks pretty good.  There's a
demo/sandbox page you can try it with here:


Can people give it a try?  If folks like it, I can probably get this
feature installed on our wiki, too.  I was impressed that I was able to
edit a table, and the right mouse button provided a pop-up menu.  (I
know, my bar is pretty low for web-based applications.)
