MT-Quicktags v0.1

Do you prefer to work directly with the HTML when writing a new entry? Are the simple formatting buttons in the MT interface simply not enough for you? MT-Quicktags is likely just the drink to quench your thirst.

Despite all the WYSIWYG editors out there, I like to write my own HTML. I also like to have buttons to help format a page, and sometimes the simple bold or link aren't enough. I turned to Alex King's excellent JavaScript Quicktags for a solution, and packaged that into a MT 3.3-compatible plugin.
