This is symptomatic of formatting inside tables, which is a well known and largely intractable problem. Confirmed. The problem is in the WysiwygPlugin which is not mapping back to TML correctly.

There are a few aspects to the problems shown in the video and I would like to tease them apart.
  1. Selecting the content of a table cell in TMCE and applying "typewriter text" does not work.
    • It does not work because selecting all the text in the cell with the keyboard and applying "typewriter text" gives the following HTML <td class="WYSIWYG_TT">text</td> in both 1.0.0 and on trunk with new TMCE
    • Applying "typewriter text" to content in the middle of a cell (i.e. with other text before and after in the same cell) does work.
    • Applying "typewriter text" to content at the beginning or end of a cell does not work. 1.0.0's TMCE produces sensible HTML i.e. <td><span class="WYSIWYG_TT">text</span> other text</td> but WysiwygPlugin converts that to <span>text</span> other text. (Trunk's TMCE adds a non-breaking space, but WysiwygPlugin produces the same TML.)
  2. Applying wiki markup in WYSIWYG mode
    • This should probably not work, but I like the fact that it does work.
    • Expect surprises if you mix TML and WYSIWYG on the same text.
