If only WYSIWYG editors were smart enough, I'd agree.

But how many times have you used, say, bold in [insert WYSIWYG editor of choice], did some more editing, then as you start typing on the next line, it starts with bold because you know that internally, the bold end tag got messed up and now follows the linefeed character instead of appearing before it. That sort of thing. Bullet-point lists with various indentation levels is the other thing that gets me. Once the indentation starts getting messed up, it becomes practically impossible to fix. Copy a multi-level bullet-point list from WordPad, paste it into Word or OneNote, do some more editing, then bring it back in the original app. You're lucky if nothing got messed up.

(Multiple) decades ago, WordPerfect got it right - it was a WYSIWYG editor, but gave you a "reveal codes" option. If the editor wasn't smart enough, you at least had the ability to go in and clean things up yourself and not have to pray it eventually understands what you meant all along.
