Summary0001394: XML based editing
DescriptionI think it could be practical to have a toggle un the text editor between Wysiwyg and some kind of XML. One click you have the classical way to type text, Another one, formating disappear, XML tage appears like this :

<font name="Bistream Vera Sans MS" size="10">
blah blah blahalahb blah blah
<justify>blih blih blih blah blah</justify>
<style name="paragraph">
frudubulubruih :)

notice the difference between the (ugly) formating tags at the beginning, and the descriptive style tags, wich then define the look of the text.
TagsNo tags attached.

The ability to expose the internal XML for text objects might also be rather interesting for the Python interface.

Might well be useful for 0002108 and 0001791 too.

The approaches of Inkscape and InDesign are worth looking at.

Also related to:

If the text format could have been xml-based and integrated with, or even better: based on, the odt-format, then bug 5190 would also be solved at the same time :-)

Can I suggest a tree-based xml editor like the one Inkscape has. It could be plug-in and/or integrated in the 'outline' window.

EDIT: I see you are referring only to text entities. I meant an XML editor for the whole SLA document. Should I open a new issue for this feature?

for text only, isn't that what you can do through a LaTeX box?
