WYSIWYG vs Text editing

Perhaps this post required a bit more explanation.   Below is what you lot come up with when given free range on a blog post.   I was showing the wordpress interface in this lesson as it is an excellent real life example of both a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) and a text editing web publishing tool.   You can use either (depending on how good your HTML is).

To recap:

  • Text editors require lots of skill and knowledge (to write code)
  • Making a page in a text editor doesn’t always come out how you thought
  • Text editors don’t require fancy (power hungry) software
  • WYSIWYG editors are easy to use and don’t need much training
  • Scar is bad.

Be prepared.

Our teeth and ambitions are bared.
