I can't find a duplicate of this enhancement request.

I would *love* to have the interactive editing live-preview feature that stackoverflow has.

It's using WMD (markdown)

Well there's already a WYSIWYG plugin. I realize this is different (and honestly, I like this sort of thing better. Either way, it's still more likely to happen as a plugin.

(If you wanted to make it *really* cool it could include wiki macro rendering, which obviously would require XmlHttpRequests…)

Thanks for your link. Unfortunately, it's not quite the same thing, as you said.

Having the WMD approach is better, because you can't screw up the raw text format (something that any WYSIWYG would suck at). Furthermore, it's actually easier to use the markup than wysiwyg for people that are use to the formatting blocks/marks.

I don't think it requires any XmlHttpFoo, because it's only javascript client-side, afaik.

Btw, when i say "wiki style", I mean it should apply to ticket or milestone description editing as well (or any other wiki formatted content)

The demo looks impressive indeed. Scheduling for "incorporate alien technology" milestone. Of course, adoption might be accelerated by a working patch.
