Many people who use the WYSIWYG editor don't want to (or need to) see things such as HTML comments and certain TML sections. More to the point, WYSI editing of code sections can be problematic. Variables, plugin code, div directives, HTML comments, CSS... these things are far more likely to be broken by WYSI(A)WYG editing than simle TML content.

It would be convenient to be able to hide code directves from casual editors using the WYSIWYG editor, i.e. to let them see and edit only the textual content without ever being exposed to the back-end administrative "stuff". (If you use Raw mode editing, everything should be displayed as usual.)

Suggestion: Perhaps something like %<nop>STARTSECTION{"rawmode"}% ... %<nop>ENDSECTION {"rawmode"}% would be a good option. If we think of a topic as the "template" for the WYSI editor, there's a certain consistency to using SECTIONs.
