        [ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
        [ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
        [ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.

    Have you seen the preview option of AucTeX?  It renders the equations
    and images referenced in the .tex file inline as you type it in.
    Would that be a direction in which you'd want the WYSIWYG feature to
    go.  Write in some markup and have a real time buffer render it
    immediately as you type?

It would be a step forward, but if the user needs to know the markup
language, it will require a lot more learning a than ordinry WYSIWYG
word processors do.  Also, format compatibility is very important.
Could it be provided in this mode?
