As of Monday, December 15, everyone using Intercom to submit a story will see a more user-friendly interface!

A new WYSIWYG editorial tool -- WYSIWYG is short for "what you see is what you get" -- will be added to Intercom. This means that anyone submitting a story (via the "Contribute and Manage Stories" page) will see a graphics-based WYSIWYG that they can use to format the text of the story, encode hyperlinks, and so forth. It is the same tool used by the Web Profile Manager (WPM); but even if you're not a WPM user, it should not prove difficult for anyone familiar with modern word-processing software.
