The overall layout is delivered from a cms. The main texts (on "normal"
pages one text area) are edited by a wysiwyg editor (kupu or TinyMCE). I
would rate the html created by the editor delivers html as acceptable (only
tags and classes, no stupid attributes like style or font). It's not
realistic (and in any case not productive) to let editors write html. A
text markup language (ala markdown, in our case called ReST) would be
possible, but not much better then html.
The output from the editor is fitted into the layout, together with many
other parts (the title, the vertical navigation, the horizontal navigation
box in the 2nd levels, maybe a marketing box or a box with a feed from
plant.gnome.org, ...). Which layout is used is decided by the cms (via the
output it generates).
Will we be able to generate pages like this in a wysiwyg editor? I really think we can't get stuck in a simple editor that can only generate simple pages. For these cases, only HTML can be extensible enough.
We already have live.gnome.org
for putting fast information in a wiki format. The GNOME Website should not look like a wiki. We need pages that look and feel as polished as possible, and for this I think there will be always a designer by the side of the editors to edit the pages and make it beautiful (editing in HTML! :D).
