3rd-Gen Editor: Missing simple text-edit features (so email is uglier)


3rd-Gen Editor: Missing simple text-edit features (so email is uglier)

I am NOT asking here for HTML-edit ability.  I know that's either far-future or won't-do.  But here are a couple things that any moderately-heavy user of Word might expect:

(1) Non-breaking spaces (and hyphens):  Can't insert them at all.  
EXPECT:  To enter with shift-control-[space] (or dash).  Perhaps optionally also (but this is a stretch) inserted via the generalized "insert" affordance that's so badly needed.  

(2) Fine control of the multi-column boundaries:  Can only select between a few coarsely-grained locations.  
EXPECT:  To be able to drag the column divider pixel-by-pixel, if I hold down ctrl or alt while I drag.  
Again, the above are features in Word, and other editors, that a user might reasonably try.  Without them, I cannot avoid some stone-ugly line breaks.  Including ones (e.g. between "Aug" and "3") that are semantically weird or confusing.
