What formatting tags are allowed in the alternate editor?

    I have previously discussed an issue where my browser does not support all the features of the Visual Editor in WordPress. Today I discovered that if I turn off JavaScript, an alternate editor is activated. This alternate editor might be useful to me. However, I need to know more about it. I have discovered that various HTML tags are auto-removed (such as the line-break code). Other tags get modified –“italic” and “bold” tags become whole words inside the angle-brackets. What I want is a complete list of all the angle-bracketed formatting tags that the alternate editor allows (and what each tag is for). Thank you!

    No, that doesn’t answer my question. This alternate editor does not accept most normal HTML tags; it mostly uses its own special tags. For example, the HTML <i> tag becomes <italic> and the <p> tag becomes <para>, and the <br /> tag is discarded and completely ignored. If this alternate editor has some equivalent of the <br /> tag, I most certainly need to know what it is! (And I want a list of all the other tags it accepts, too.)
