HTML Editors

Post  admin on Fri 23 Jul 2010, 3:28 am

An HTML editor is a software application for creating web page.

There are three main types of HTML editors:

* text
* object
* WYSIWIG (What You See Is What You Get)

Text editors are usually used for simple websites and coding, and they usually provide syntax highlighting (the displaying of source code in different fonts and colours according to the category of terms). Text editors usually require the user to have a basic understanding of HTML or other scripting languages.

Object editors allow alternate editing of the source text of objects in more visually organized modes than simple color highlighting, but in modes not considered WYSIWYG.

WYSIWYG editors provide an editing interface which resembles how the page will be displayed in a web browser, so that users can see the results of their scripting while they are scripting.
Using a WYSIWIG editor does not require knowledge of HTML, so they are easier to operate that text-based editors.
What You See Is What You Mean (WYSIWYM) is different from WYSIWIG. Instead of focusing on the format or presentation of the document, it preserves the intended meaning of each element. Page headers, sections, and paragraphs are labeled as such in the editing program, and displayed appropriately in the browser.
