I have posted a crude UI mock-up  of how I would envisage the edit
working. The icon (an 'e' in a circle) is just a crude example - in
practice we would want something a lot nicer and non-language-specific.
blue highlighting in the mock-up indicates how we could highlight the
section to be edited when the mouse moves over the link.
The highlighting is another excellent idea. I would, however, be
strongly inclined to stay away from icons, as we've done to date, when
there are simple and more easily-understandable textual labels that
would work just as well.
Actually I prefer the icons, because they provide a consistency which you
simply cannot get with text. Whilst "edit" is blessedly succinct in English,
I'll bet that in other languages the equivalent is much more verbose: this
could be used in the alt-text just like at present.
Would it be possible to actually produce a "MySkin" which worked like this?
If not, what more would be necessary to make this possible?
