If you are used to text processors, then you can understand
in a short time how to work with a WYSIWYG HTML editor. The one of many characteristics of WYSIWYG HTML editors is the user ability to view the HTML page as it will be displayed in the web browser. When you create a HTML page, you will be able to insert pictures, tables, format text and more with a few clicks. You should be aware that knowing how to operate with a WYSIWYG HTML editor is not equivalent to knowing HTML.
One of the major disadvantages of WYSIWYG HTML editors is the big size of the generated web pages that will take longer time to load in web browsers.
