I like this alternative. While it does not have to be a editor, a dialog
might allow the user to select fonts, font size on body and headings, color
and underlining of links, page margins, etc. Properties I think everyone can
understand. I would not expect the user to create a sub-class on <p> anymore
than I would expect people to make their own book covers.
