Open with one click!

Now, I know enough md to get by. Lots of people use it. Lots of other people (see, I used it!) would rather have at least SOME whizzy-wig capability. 'Cuz why else does the interface I'm using right now in Google Groups have things like this or this or even bullet lists to click (perhaps they use TinyMCE themselves)? It should be just as much about reducing learning curves as the "right" solution. I hate having to remember if links are like this or (this)[url] or even [url like this]
