WYSIWYG editors are editing programs that display not only source code but also the optical output of the content as it corresponds to the later output.

When programming a website, for example, it is displayed in the internet browser exactly as it will be displayed later. Especially content management systems (CMS) and e-mail marketing tools work with WYSIWYG editors. This makes it possible for users without extensive HTML or programming skills to create websites.
