Great plugin sama55! I will test this plugin and update you.

btw, will it work on already created HTML pages?

Thanks ProThouts for your comment.
> btw, will it work on already created HTML pages?
I am also anxious about it. Although the plastic surgery function of HTML code of CKEditor is able compared with TinyMCE, there is a possibility of still changing the HTML code too. I recommend to use this plugin from immediately after Q2A installation. When HTML code is being created by manual operation, use this plugin after backup original HTML code.

may be you should name this plugin as WYSIWYG Editor for Pages (admin plugin).

Tested with QA 1.6-dev-0213 and database with existing manual HTML pages(pages created without this plugin).

- Works on all pages, can identify existing HTML code and able to edit and save again.

- Able to create new pages with no issues.

- Able to modify sidebar, main page text.

so far I'm not able to find any issues with this plugin. I'm still testing this plugin, will keep you updated.
