Not as pretty nor as complete as it could be, but I've clearly gone some way to getting things to work together.
However, note that in line 6 and 7, I have selected the "p" tag across two lines, meaning that I can change related text across multiple lines, because the block selection feature is a standard part of all editors, including any new editor you create, such as the FreeMarker editor above.
