I could suggest Joe's Own Editor (joe) which I have been
using on a VT-101. If your baudrate is sufficient, you
can even use the Midnight Commander's Editor (mcedit),
and it's _very_ easy to use.

Basically all text editors are WYSIWYG, except probably
ed, the _standard_ editor, which is YAFIYGI (you asked
for it, you got it). :-)
