Can't create language variant markup from VisualEditor
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

VisualEditor got the ability to edit language converter markup in T49411, but the implementation stopped short of hooking the new inspectors/etc up to the toolbar menu to allow users to insert new language converter markup from scratch. In particular the ability to add the "raw" markup -{ ... }- would be very useful.

(See also T182910: VE should support "hidden" and "describe" flags for language converter markup..)

There's a "Language" entry in the 'styles' drop down. Perhaps it could be made a nested menu, and allow variant markup as well as tagging the source language.
