TinyMCE Editor Help Summary
Normal - Normal text style
Heading 1-6 - Headings. 1 is largest
VERBATIM - Text is shown in monospace with line breaks. Wraps <verbatim> tags around the selected text. No TWiki Variables are interpreted inside verbatim tags
LITERAL - Styled content is saved exactly as it appears in the editor. Saves the selected content as raw HTML and wraps it in <literal> tags
Protect on save - Prevent any change to the selected text when the edit is saved. Use this to save advanced TWiki Variables where you do not want the Wysiwyg editor to modify the text during save
Protect forever - Content is saved exactly as it is typed, and the protection is still there in future edit sessions. Content is wrapped in <sticky> tags
If the cursor is in a list item, change the indent
Otherwise mark text with <BLOCKQUOTE> tags (the default TWiki skin shows blockquotes indented with a blue background)
Links can either point to a URL or to the name of a TWiki topic.
E.g. http://twiki.org, TopicNames, Webname.TopicNames, or Webname.Subweb.WebName.
An anchor is a hidden mark you can use to link to a certain part of a topic, e.g a heading or a paragraph. An anchor must be a WikiWord.
Setting a TWiki variable
Create a list item using the toolbar button
In the list item, type Set NAME = value
Select the value, and assign the Protect on save style to it (only required if the value contains any TWiki Markup Language or if you style it e.g. to add bold, or if it's sensitive to the number of spaces)
Using a TWiki Variable
Just type it in. When the topic is saved, what you type will be saved just as you wrote it.
If any part of your variable parameters is sensitive to spacing, then select the entire TWiki variable and assign the PROTECTED style to it before you save.
Editing the raw text instead of Wysiwyg
, or use the Raw Edit link in the bottom action bar.
Comments & Questions about this Distribution Document Topic
This is still quite long for a help text in edit mode. Some items are not applicable once you are editing, for instance "Why does the WyswiygPlugin have to be disabled?"

Yep, I know. I've just copied it from the Dev page. I'm quite busy with a project at work right know so I couldn't continue on this one so far.

I re-wrote the doc. The FAQ was more for an admin than for a user. In the final version we should add the image of the icons we try to explain.
I did not explain the HTML icon. In my view it should be removed from the tool bar. The "HTML" has nothing to do with what a normal user should ever see or try to edit.

Thanks Kenneth, I think I'll have time to continue on this one tonight.

I think we ought to split the "basic help" (Kenneth has done a great job above, and I've taken it into Subversion) and the "advanced help" viz. the FAQ. At this stage (at least for the beta) the FAQ should be on TWiki.org.

Hi Peter: I'd like to help translate TinyMCE and other new twiki language file into Chinese. Seem time is too late for me to join the irc. I'll check the meeting minute later.

Does TinyMCE support Chinese character? Thanks?

Sam, the answer is No.
I move my answer and the problem to TinyMCEPluginDev
