Editor's Notes

  1. A WP Visual Editor is a plugin that allows users to create web pages without using HTML or XML code. The Visual Editor typically resembles word processing software. (Microsoft Word)
  2. If you're planning to develop websites for a living - make a career out of web development you need to learn proper HTML
  3. HTML is for document structure not document design. Visual Editors work on the opposite line of thought. HTML determines the different elements on a page such as a heading, paragraph, list and etc. How these elements are viewed is the choice of the various web browsers. (Explorer, FireFox, Chrome and Safari) With CSS, the design and visual of a web page is separated from the actual content. The content of the web page resides in HTML while the view (colors, positioning etc.) remains in the CSS rules.
  4. CKEditor from Cksource is a plugin to customize the appearance of the visual editor to resemble Microsoft Word. It Allows client comfort using a less intimidating visual editor. This plugin won't work for all website projects as it adds lots of unwanted code.
