What I've sometimes imagined in a system where there is a menubar on a
text editor that is the markup menubar.  So you can ask for a paragraph
or a list or whatever and it puts the markup in the text.

Combine that with a split screen, rendered output at the top, source at
the bottom and you're 95% of the way there.
