I was thinking about the design of such an editor as well, although
I know I won't have the time to write one.  So, I'll just add a suggestion
on to Dave's design list ;).

I would like to have the editor work with two parallel views of the
document: one with a full text view of the HTML source and the other
with a view of how the text should be displayed (similar to a Mosaic
display widget).  Both windows should be editable and the insertion/
deletion of printable characters should appear simultaneously in both
windows as appropriate to the context in which they are typed.  The
difficult thing will be to get the display-widget to read partially-formed
HTML text and interpret the results in a reasonable manner.  Naturally,
I'll leave that up to someone else to figure out.
