This came up in conversation at the recent @media conference but it
does seem a thorny problem. Other option (besides a highlight, point
and click wysiwyg affair) could be a microformats extension to
something like textile (not for everyone) or clever language analysis
tools to "recognise" names, addresses, locations and dates, etc. and
to add relevant markup.

All problems waiting to be solved as far as I know thought I'd be
interested in being proved wrong.
