Improve the Text Block Editor

This is a request to consolidate all the piecemeal requests for a real text editor in Text Blocks. I just finished building a Page-heavy site, and was surprised to discover that nearly every block of text needed to be built in HTML. Even simple formatting such as bulleted lists and mail-to links cannot be accommodated in a Text Block. I've seen first-hand how this deters new subscribers. See:

        Just to clarify about mail-to links... The link tool in the Text blocks does successfully create a basic mail-to target given an email address, but it cannot be edited to add an email Subject parameter.
