Furthermore, I think a Skywriter plugin FOR WIKITEXT would be fantastic. Some
simple color cues would help immensely when you're dealing with a complicated
article with templates calling templates, embedded HTML (a no-no, I know, but
it happens), complicated nested tables, and so forth.

I haven't looked to see what's out there recently (within the last year), but
the closest I was ever able to manage in years past was jEdit with the mwjed
plugin. And as I recall, "some assembly" was required. Skywriter seems poised
to make syntax highlighting of wikitext articles as simple as installing a
MediaWiki extension, if someone could be bothered to write the "glue" to make
it work.
