All wysiwig editors are text editors, but not all text editors are wysiwig. The acronym "wysiwyg" stands for "what you see is what you get." All text editors let you compose on the computer, and most provide some tools for managing the process of inputting and outputting. However, not all are wysiwyg. For example, the screen font may not be the same as the printed font. With wysiwig, the text will print just as you see it on the screen. That is to say, the formatting that you see on the screen will be what you see on the printed page, in terms of (for example) font, margins, and pagination.

WYSIWYG Graphical Website Software?

There are several types of website design software available, but by far the one that is most used is known as what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) software. Unlike an HTML editor that shows the markup code for a site, WYSIWYG software allows a website to be built graphically, sometimes using premade components or templates. Once a site has been built, the software can usually use the rendering engines from popular browsers to test the appearance of the site before it is published. When choosing graphical website software, it is important to make sure the editor is a WYSIWYG editor and not an HTML or CSS text editor.

What is the difference between a Text Editor and HTML?

A text editor is a program that allows you to manipulate plain text. You can use a text editor to write HTML, if you'd like. An HTML editor normally has specific features which make coding HTML easier. Syntax-highlighting being chief amongst them. An HTML editor also works in plain-text, however. You could edit any text file in the HTML editor, if you wanted.


Is FCKeditor or CKeditor a CMS?

Neither of those CKSource products are content management systems (CMS). They are WYSIWYG text and HTML editors used to facilitate text area input. Note that WYSIWYG stands for "what you see is what you get". In that sense, these are editors that allow the user to make visual changes to an input area that look the same as (or very similar to) what is being submitted.For instance, take a non-WYSIWYG editor and a WYSIWYG editor for example and say you would like to make the text "Lorem" BOLD.CASE 1 - non-WYSIWYG editorIn the non- WYSIWYG editor, the editor would place non-HTML tags around the text and it would become something like this for the viewer prior to submission:[B]Lorem[/B]Upon submission, however these non-HTML tags would be replaced by HTML tags and thus, would be displayed as bold by the browser.CASE 2 - WYSIWYG editorIn the WYSIWYG editor, the editor would place hidden HTML tags around the text and it would become something like this for the viewer prior to submission:LoremUpon submission, the hidden part of what the user sees (i.e. the HTML code that makes "Lorem" bold) is sent and thus, would be displayed as bold by the browser.A content management system is one which a user can add / change / remove contents and their properties within their website using some user friendly methods that tend to avoid HTML (as the user may not be familiar with it). In this system, when it is required for the user to change a portion of the website that is text, image, table, or otherwise, the WYSIWYG editors come into play and allow them to do just that while staying away from both HTML and non-HTML tags. It also provides an editing interface with much visual reference to work with (which is very useful for inexperienced users).To that end, the FCKeditor and CKeditor are both editing tools that can be implemented into a CMS system. Generally, the better the WYSIWYG placed within a CMS, the better the CMS. However, the quality of the CMS also depends on its organization, usability and features.I hope this helped.Answered by EZMAIA Web Design
