An HTML editor is a piece of software used to create or edit web pages using HTML code. A distinction is made between text-based programs (which allow direct editing of the source code) and 'WYSIWYG' editors (which allow the pages to be edited exactly as they appear in the browser). Unlike text-based editors, no knowledge of HTML is necessarily required for WYSIWYG editors.
