Extended usage and notes:

* The default format will only be set on NEW nodes and comments. The format 
  selected when the form is submitted is used for future editing purposes.

* The module is designed to always fall back to default settings when needed. 
  This means that when you enable the module before you change any settings, 
  it will use your current Drupal settings. Also when you enable conrol per node 
  type it will use your global settings until you save the content type with new 
  settings.

* The permissions "collapse format fieldset by default" and 
  "collapsible format selection" will only work if "Show format selection" is 
  also given. This is because those 2 perms only have an effect when there is 
  a format selection.

* The permission "collapse format fieldset by default" will only work if 
  "collapsible format selection" is also given. This is because the 
  fieldset can only be collapsed by default if it is collapsible.
