Quick Reference

An editor which produces Web pages. It is different from an HTML editor in that it displays how a page will look in the window that is used for editing. WYSIWYG editors have now become very sophisticated and use textual layers for the layout of material on a page. The most sophisticated editors also offer a plethora of other facilities including the checking of hyperlinks, the semi-automatic insertion of rollovers, site transfer using facilities normally found in FTP software, automated table development, automated frame development, the development of image maps, the use of HTML templates, and the construction of animations.
