No one has complained about writing HTML directly, tho for the more 
complex articles it can be a PITA.  TinyMCE as is set up in WordPress is 
not bad (anymore.. used to drive me nuts) and especially the image 
uploading and stuff works pretty well in Wordpress (now).  Still, I 
always set my blogs to default at the HTML tab.  My main concern about 
TinyMCE is that it doesn't interfere w/ my html.

Even if all you could do was double-space and have it throw in <p>'s 
that would save some work.

Ultimately, I think this is a minor problem compared to a lot of other 
problems we face with our site usability.  I'd be down with using 
TinyMCE if it behaves like it behaves in Wordpress.  But if it works 
like Kupu or inserts MS Word formatting, I'd have to kill someone.
