WYSIWYG is an acronym that stands for "What You See Is What You Get". This is a common approach to the user experience of text editors because it shows the user what the text will actually look like in the published document or webpage. This is easier to visualize than any code or other markup being used "behind the scenes".
When you edit a page on your website, you will see a WYSIWYG text editor by default due to it's simplicity compared to the HTML code that makes up a web page. If you make formatting changes in the WYSIWYG editor, you can expect those changes to appear on the published webpage.
