|WYSIWYG - Browser based page editors|
A WYSISYG, which is short for What You See Is What You Get is a tool that enables users without any HTML knowledge to easily edit web pages. If you can use Microsoft Word, you can use this tool.
An alternative to setting up a complete CMS system is the What You See Is What You Get type of editor. This allows the person to use browser based software to edit the site. Normally the content displayed in the editor mode is very similar to the end result. This allows for easy editing giving no surprises of how the page will look once published.

What is the difference between WYSIWYG and CMS?
Content Management Systems are far more powerful that WYSIWYG editors. CMS allows you not only to edit content, but to a new pages, change your menu structure; it allows you to have absolute control over your website. WYSIWYG editors, on the other hand, typically only allow you to edit content on selected pages that already exist. Depending on the website you need, a WYSIWYG makes more sense a lot of time, due to its simplicity and user friendliness.
