When you work in a WYSIWYG Web page editor (like Netscape Composer, included with this book), your page looks (with minor exceptions) just the way it will look to most visitors on the Web.
That's a powerful convenience; without it, Web authors have had to guess about the appearance of their pages while fiddling with all the HTML code. To check their work, authors had to open the file in a browser and then go back to the HTML code to make adjustments. With a WYSIWYG editor, you can see and do it all in one window, live and in color .
This chapter examines the general operation of Composer so that you know your way around when you approach the specific authoring tasks coming up in later chapters.
