Displaying natedit-toolbar or any TML help when editing textarea field of DataForm
This is great that it is possible to use Topic Markup Language
in textarea field of DataForms
However, when one edit such field, he/she edit raw wiki-text and have no help, such as provided by NatEdit
Why do not display any TML help buttons or edit textarea in WYSIWYG mode?
Is it possible:
- to edit textarea (and others?) form fields in WYSIWYG
- make this behaviour default for whole Foswiki?

I don't know an answer for actually adding WYSIWYG editing for textarea field without creating a pretty sophisticated custom edit template. However, I would mention a practice I sometime use when 1) the primary data in a topic is stored in data form and 2) there's one "field" that holds text that would be suitable for WYSIWYG. I create a custom edit template that simply makes the form-edit the default (first) tab and move the "body" editor (with WYSIWYG) to the second tab and rename the tab something like "Notes". Then I create a custom view template that displays the form data in nicely formatted manner and includes the "Notes" field which simply displays the content of the topic body.
