Integrate TinyMCE into Evernote

Idea

Rather than maintain an in-house editor for Notes, incorporate the TinyMCE ( https://www.tinymce.com/) editor into the Evernote Web Client

TinyMCE is a fully featured, embedded HTML editor, that could provide all the edit feature typically available in many web-based application and provide a more consistent and feature-rich editing environment across all supported platforms

ENML may need to be extended to allow support for the additional feature of HTML5, or conversely the editor could be "cut back" to only support the elements currently available in ENML

It's an interesting idea, but what happens to the databases and client software used on the Win/Mac/IOS/Android platforms?

Nothing needs to happen to them.

ENML is a markup language, so what's being store is essentially text. Backend storage and processing does NOT need to change

What you get using TinyMCE (or any embedded platform-independent editor) is a consistency across platforms at the GUI (Web, Windows or MAC). I use Windows and Web clients, and I'm now LOSING functionality and getting an inconsistent user experience

By extending ENML to support HTML (created by TinyMCE) you also get a migration path as existing client would still work

P.S when you next reply to this thread, bear in mind your USING TinyMCE now (or something like it) so NOW imagine this as part of Evernote...
