And your opinion, as well. ;-D

My take:  In some ways, Amaya is just of word processor that uses 
HTML/XHTML as its native format. In that regard, its table of contents 
features are great. Its conversion features, such as its ability to 
convert e.g. paragraphs to a lists, is a good, simple idea. Its ability 
to select parent or child content etc with simple keystrokes. There are 
many, many details. All other WYSIWYG editors seem to have been made 
for 'designing' short things.
