why are you trying to upgrade? we dont recommend upgrading at this time due to SMF 2.1 being in beta.

I hope you are not trying to upgrade your production site, especially without having thorough backups.

I'm not too familiar with the differences between wysiwyg -editors, as I personally prefer manual labor over automatic thingamajigs - But is there something in particular that the 2.0 wysiwyg editor isn't doing properly already?
