MetaPhile: Important structural elements are unavailable

This bug is well known. We need BLOCKQUOTE, actual heading elements (perhaps just H2 through H6), possibly a few more.

However, enabling the IMG element is dangerous, as MetaFilter has learned the hard way. One can encode JavaScript exploits in URLs or the src of an image. Limiting images to attachments (kind of odd for a Web site, less so for a discussion forum) is a reasonable compromise.

Yes, please.

The "insert image" feature at the bottom of this text entry box is adequate, and doesn't involve the potential hazards of external hosting.

Although that feature works just fine with me, it relies on Flash and can cause problems.
