It might be a little strange for people first going into a more HTML-centric mindset from simply posting text and having it auto-formatted. Fortunately once an article is formatted with tags it shouldn't be hard to figure out how it works at all. Each little entry would generally have similar formatting so some copy/paste fun should do the trick nicely.
