WYSIWY(A)G editor gets confused when you try to do something that seems reasonable, but apparently isn't.

Specifically, create a verbatim text block, say, with a code example.

Select a piece of that block & change the color to red, so as to highlight something.

The screen will look as expected, however when the topic is saved, there is a <font> </font> tag pair visible - apparently the <verbatim> is superseding the <font>. Sorta understandable. But not what's desired - nor what you see when making the attempt.

For an example, see the workaround section in This bug report.

Invested some time on this issue, could not create this one on trunk code - so closing this item.

I have opened topic - http://www.twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/ImproveWYSIWYG to track feature which is discussed above.
