[rfc-i] "wysiwyg" requirement

Julian,

NroffEdit gives you two windows next to each other, one with the nroff
input and the other with the rendered output. You can edit in either window
and the other window is automatically updated in real time to reflect the
change. Both the .nroff and .txt are also saved to your disk
simultaneously. That should satisfy your requirement.

Cheers,
Andy
