Setting up the Rich Text Editor for easier content entry

There are a few small changes you can make that will make a huge difference to content editor.

1) If you are entering multilingual content then you may want to populate the symbols section with the accented chracters to help the user add those characters especially if they don't have a french keyboard.

2) The other change to make is to supply the user with the more advanced menu for the rich text editor.  This will allow them to indent, change font etc.
