I'm curious about writers who are working in Markdown or similar lightweight markup (asciidoc, restructuredtext etc etc).

Do you work mostly in the raw text? Or do you use some kind of WYSYWIG-style graphical editor and stay away from the raw plain text syntax?

Personally I would probably stick with the plain text.
