Editing will all be 'inside' abiword, allowing you for example to delete
tags by moving your cursor just in front of a tag, and hitting 'delete'.
Normal text editing will also be allowed.

Sample: consider having a large paragraph (1+ page) with bold and italic
properties. When you currently want to remove, say, the bold property,
you have to select the whole paragraph, and hit the 'bold' toolbar
The new view (will) allow(s) you to just move before the [bold> tag, and
hit delete. It's quite convenient actually... deleting a whole table
with nothing more than 1 keystroke is nice.
