I daily roll back topics on TWiki.org because of WYSIWYG editor breaking content.

One example:

TWiki:Main.WebHome has this:

Bugs Web Utilities

After a users saves the page with the WYSIWYG editor you get this:

Bugs Web Utilities

same in verbatim:

---++ <nop>%WEB% Web Utilities 
<form action='%SCRIPTURLPATH{"search"}%/%WEB%/'>
   * %TWIKIWEB%.WelcomeGuest - for first time visitors
   * [[%TWIKIWEB%.TWikiRegistration][Registration]] - become a <nop>%WIKITOOLNAME% user
   * *%WIKIUSERSTOPIC%* - list of users of this <nop>%WIKITOOLNAME% site
   * TWikiGroups - list of groups used for access control

   * <input name="search" size="22">&nbsp;<input value="Search" class="twikiSubmit" type="submit"> - [[WebSearchAdvanced][advanced search]]  <li> WebTopicList - all topics in alphabetical order  </li><li> WebChanges - recent topic changes in this web  </li><li> WebNotify - subscribe to an e-mail alert sent when topics change  </li><li> WebRss, WebAtom - RSS and ATOM news feeds of topic changes  </li><li> WebStatistics - listing popular topics and top contributors  </li><li> WebPreferences - preferences of this web </li></input></input>

  • <b> tags enclosing WikiWords with spaces get replaced with * bold syntax without spaces, resulting in a bold text without link.
