If you prefer text editor over the visual one and you often deal with HTML code inside it, you already know how plain a default text editor can be. The code you place in the editor will look like the rest of the text and you will have a hard time editing your code.
If you’re still not using an HTML editor outside your WordPress, at least make your default editor more compatible for HTML.
