A WYSIWYG (pronounced "wiz-ee-wig") has the ability to convert an HTML TEXTAREA fields or other HTML elements to editor instances. Somewhat like a wordprocessor where a developer can see what the end result will look like while the interface or document is being created without knowledge of HTML or CSS. However, most editors have an option to switch directly to source, for hard coding HTML and CSS if preferred.
WYSIWYG is an acronym for "what you see is what you get".
