I may have spoken too soon on the absence of rich text editing textarea in WF2. 

Looking at the spec, there is an accept attribute for the textarea
element, and its description fits the bill very nicely. If we have
accept="text/html" or accept="application/xml+xhtml", it is totally up
to the UA to provide a specialized editor -- the HTML editor in this

Am I right on this one?
