Work items edition

We are having difficulties when editing work item description in module. The rich text editor in the designer or table tab has a strange behavior : sometimes the style is sticky (it is difficult to remove bold aspect from a text), sometimes on the contrary it is suppressed when a line break is removed. The editor does not handle tables correctly. Moreover this editor is not really wysiwyg : the same text shown in the home pane is different from what is displayed in designer or table pane, not to mention that what is generated in pdf which is really ugly.

Questions :
Is it possible to disable this editor in order to use a plain wiki editor ?
Where are the configuration files used to transform the content of a work item into html and/or pdf ?
Is it possible to provide a customized transform file to generate better output ?

I had a look to the files workitem.xml in the repository to figure out why the formatting was so disappointing :
I don't know why a simple end of line in my text is translated into a html paragraph <p class="paragraph">, for me it should be a simple <br>
Moreover it happens that sometimes an extra <br/> is inserted before the end of the paragraph . As a result my final document is full of unwanted white lines.

On the other hand I would like to insert page breaks in the text in order to separate cleanly different sections. I don't know how to do that.
