Course: Using a WYSIWYG (web editing tool)


Good formatting makes web content look professional. Bad formatting damages search results, readability, and accessibility.

This short online course helps web content authors avoid common blunders in web formatting. These can easily occur if you’re using a content management system (CMS) without understanding some basic facts. They happen whenever WYSIWYG icons are on show, and especially if you write web content in MS Word.
