Working with the Html source editor - formatting and other issues

Our new site uses a lot of widgets, and I'm finding the HTML source editor a bit painfull.

I tend to copy and paste out of it into a text editor and work on the code as it saves it without indextation etc.

One time I pasted from the wrong text file into the editor and saved (accidently) and I lost loads of work.

In general the copying and pasting and lack of indentation etc is bugging me.

Is there some way to get the widgets to use markup in a saved file somewhere?

Is there a better workflow or enhancement (module) I'm missing here, or is everyone just doing what I do?

I use Markdown instead of HTML pretty much everywhere on my own sites.
