That's not a bad idea there. But in a visual editor (most cases) - how
would you decide what semantic mark-up to use?

In my xml schemas I populate my descriptions elements in the xhtml
namespace. I think this may be the best way to edit rich text in xforms.

Would it theoretically be possible to insert xml markup into a textarea
field, if the XML Schema allows it, and then display the result via css?

I would like to ask you all for help once more.
Anytime it comes to a discussion about using XForms-based user
interfaces in a project for structured content acquisition, our
customers ask for the possibility to insert formatted text into a
textarea. This user requirement is often a very critical one. I am sure
that some of you are already familiar with such kind of requirements and
I would therefore like to ask you for useful input, how I can solve
