View as source

I have just realized that there is a much better editing experience if you switch the edit box to View as Source.

It is faster, the spacing is laid out as it will be after it is posted and you can use all the familiar tags.

Thanks for that tip.

I have been deliberately keeping away from my Profile in case that caused even more trouble :)
