4.1. WYSIWYG Editor

To easily create and edit pages for your website without having to install anything you can use our WYSIWYG editor; an easy to use webpage creator that looks similar to Microsoft Word so it should be easy to get to grips with. It's described as WYSIWYG which stands for What You See Is What You Get - so what you see in the editor is how your webpage will look.
