Request: Removal of Heading Tags Button

A button to remove heading tags would be useful. The RTE ability to copy and reproduce formatted text is wonderful, except when copying something with, for example, an <h1> tag.

The bold, italics, strikethrough and list buttons essentially do this for their particular formatting. If I want to unbold something, I select it and click the bold button. There's a separate button for outdent and breaking links. A button that added or removed heading tags would be a nice addition, as might a button to remove all formatting.

Alternatively, giving the user the option to strip heading tags from paste would be sufficient.

Currently, it's necessary to go into the HTML window and edit there. It's nowhere near a deal breaker, but it does interrupt workflow.

If the formatselect TinyMCE toolbar element was displayed by default, this would solve this problem. You can use it to change a heading back into a paragraph, or to a different heading, etc.

See the Advanced WYSIWYG Editor plugin for reference.
