It'd be nice if you could change to a "styleless mode", where all references to
style disappear, both on the toolbar and menu items, except of course stylesheet
stuff.
You should only be able to change to this if there is no HTML style.

For new documents, whether to open in styleless mode if it has no style should
be a preference.

Matty: It would help if you put the URL for the accessibility guidlines here.
Thanks.
See parent tracking bug.
Matty, can you explain, what you mean with "styleless" more exactly?
Anyway, I would like the basic editor UI not creating any presentational tags,
but some advanced UI (not necessarily a different mode) for stylesheets. (This
means, the editor wouldn't use <b> or <font> anymore.)
Yes, it means that no options are presented to demonstrate things like <B>, <I>,
<FONT>, <CENTER>, etc.  Similarly you could not attach inline CSS style to
spans.

Instead you use <DIV>, <SPAN>, <EM>, etc, along with classes and ids.

On second thoughts, you could probably move into styleless mode if there is
style, but it should prompt whether to remove all style, and if it doesn't,
you'd need to access those things through advanced edit or some such thing.

A smart tool for converting <B> to <EM> and so on would be useful too.
The Authoring Tools Accessibility Guidelines are now a recommendation:

Oops, that was the checklist URI. The guidelines URI is

Changing personal priorities. Giving away most of my bugs :-( (reassigning to
default owner).

I will still track these bugs closely. If you need my input, feel free to ask me.

New owner: Please do *not* close these bugs (as WONTFIX or whatever you may
find) unless they are fixed. Rather, reassign to <nobody@mozilla.org>, if you
don't want to work on them.
