Some of the editors have an option where you can edit the CSS used to  
display the WYSIWYG form so you could actually make it look exactly  
like the theme.

There could be a standard use of CSS classes or something similar and  
we could have a script that grabs that info from the theme so it can  
be used with the editor.
