WYSIWYG=What You See Is What You Get.
This is the common term used to describe web page design programs which let you design a page through the use of visual tools rather than code. The codes are still there but the program writes it for you as you design the page visually. This little editor offers us a way to create articles and pages easily for our spaces here at Cubits.org.
Thanks everyone. I was up late finishing this and jumped out of bed this morning wondering if I had forgotten anything important...like correcting typos and any glaring mistakes or omissions.
If anyone has something to add or thinks something should be altered I would appreciate the feedback so I can edit it as needed. I'd really like this to be as helpful as possible so that more people will encouraged to add articles to their cubits for me to read.

Hi ZanySue!! Great article! I feel famous since you used one of my quotes! HAHAHA
Something kept nagging me as I read it though and I had to re-read it several times before I realized what it was. When you got to the part about the photos and not using the standard images that were uploaded into the editor, you didn't mention where you'd get those that were BIGGER (or smaller)... (being uploaded files in the control panel) I already knew the answer to that, but someone else might not realize where they are supposed to retrieve the files from and will get frustrated trying to make the files they had already uploaded (into the editor) to work. Just an observation from someone that always tries to look at things from the perspective of someone who hasn't got a clue. Notice I never mentioned anyone by name here. Could be anyone!!! :-)
Since I learned more about how to place the photos and getting the text to work with me..... I'm finding myself the victor more often than the editor. That's always a great feeling!
Thanks for having the Playpen there to test out stuff. Sometimes we look at things so many times until we are blue in the face, trying to figure out why it won't work. Then you step in, the calm voice of reason, and suddenly, the light bulb shines on exactly what we are trying to accomplish. Having a "live" cubit to test these things on is invaluable! Having you there to assist.... is priceless.
1. enlarge font for easier viewing. Thanks Boo! Done
2. explain loading pics to file for use. Thanks Janet!
3. Starting now, the images are on the right-side of the page, just beside the article body.
