HTML Editor

Definition - What does HTML Editor mean?

An HTML editor is a tool for editing or evaluating code in hypertext markup language (HTML).

Techopedia explains HTML Editor

HTML has long been the default code for web design and the layout and creation of Internet pages and sites. As such, the use of HTML requires various HTML editor tools.

Essentially, a HTML editor either converts text and layout interface input into actual HTML code, or allows users to scan HTML code to look for appropriate syntax in design. The former type of editor can be called a WYSIWYG or 'what you see is what you get’ editor where the visual platform allows individuals to effectively code in HTML, without knowing HTML.

The use of HTML editors underscores the syntactical coherence of HTML as a coding language. HTML relies on the precise use of opening and closing tags, as well as various types of commands for hyperlinks, text formatting, color schemes and much more.

Successive versions of HTML have been supplemented with languages like Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) as a growing Internet enables more advanced and sophisticated forms of web development.
