WYSIWYG editing mangles %ACTIONs. It's not the editors fault, it's the syntax of the actions. While I could implement a pre-edit handler in the action tracker to convert the syntax to something more palatable, that's not really the best approach. The syntax has been causing problems for years.

Need to implement a more TWiki-friendly syntax, and add handlers to auto-upgrade existing topics as an when they are edited.

I did some more detailed analysis on this. To update the action syntax to make it useable with the WYSIWYG editors, build all the on-the-fly translation steps, and update the testcases accordingly, is about 8 hours of work. The work is confined to the ActionTrackerPlugin.

As usual, no sponsorship forthcoming so I ended up funding the fix myself frown So, here's another free gift. Enjoy.
