HTML Editor (Macromedia Dreamweaver and Microsoft FrontPage)

What is a HTML Editor? A HTML editor assists the user in writing HTML code for web pages. Although HTML code can be written and edited with any text editor, a special HTML editor is designed to be more convenient. Additionally HTML editors generally provide some assistance for creating Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). There are two flavors of HTML editors: text and WYSIWYG.

Text Editors

The text editors usually provide syntax highlighting, toolbars and keyboard shortcuts for quick inserting of HTML tags, assistants for some jobs or easy preview in the browser. Assistants are usually provided for more cumbersome tasks like adding the basic page construct or creating tables. Text editors require at least a basic understanding of HTML and CSS for creating Web sites.

WYSIWYG editors

WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors provide an editing interface which looks the same way as the output displayed in the Web browser. A WYSIWYG editor does not require the user to have any HTML knowledge, which makes it a lot easier for the average computer user to create a Web site.
