While reading the help files I noticed a screen shot of a toolbar that has the tables button and several others, but I can't find how to get the addtional buttons on the toolbar.  My edit tool bar stops at the horizontal line, the one I saw had about 6-8 more buttons if that helps.  I'm a lazy typer, so anything I can click on is great! :)

These are added using JavaScript helper functions; see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.js for an example (look
for "extra toolbar options").

What I would like to happen is for it to automatically wrap text when it gets to the end of the screen so the screen doesn't get too wide, but when you hit enter for a new line for it to actually start a new line.  I know I can use the <br> or <pre> tags when I need to, but it would be much more convienent to not have to do that.

Hack the parser.
