What Does WYSIWYG Mean?

Written by Dan

A WYSIWYG editor (pronounced “wizzy-wig”) is a tool or plugin that allows you to see what your document will look like as you type. This is opposed to a markup language such as HTML, in which you have to learn a set of tags in order to indicate how the text should be formatted.

With a WYSIWYG editor, you type normally and the you can see the output right away.
