WYMeditor is an open source web-based WYSIWYM editor with semantics and standards in mind. The WYM-part stands for “What You Mean” compared to the more common “What You See Is What You Get”.
WYMeditor’s main concept is to leave details of the document’s visual layout, and to concentrate on its structure and meaning, while trying to give the user as much comfort as possible (at least as WYSIWYG editors).
WYMeditor has been created to generate perfectly structured XHTML strict code, to conform to the W3C specifications and to facilitate further processing by modern applications.
With WYMeditor, the code can’t be contaminated by visual informations like font styles and weights, borders, colors, ... The end-user defines content meaning, which will determine its aspect by the use of style sheets. The result is easy and quick maintenance of information.
As the code is compliant to W3C specifications, you can for example process it using a XSLT (at the client or the server side), giving you a wide range of applications.

WYMeditor is different from the traditional editors because we are 100% focused on providing a simple experience for users that separates the content of their document from the presentation of that document. We focus on enforcing web standards and separating a document’s structure (HTML) from its presentation (CSS). Your users won’t know and shouldn’t care about HTML, but when they need consistent, standards-compliant, clean content, they’ll thank you.
There are lots of choices when it comes to a brower-based editor and many of them are stable, mature projects with thousands of users. If you need an editor that gives total control and flexibility to the user (not you, the developer), then WYMeditor is probably not for you. If you want an editor that you can customize to provide the specific capabilities your users need, and you want users focused on the structure of their content instead of tweaking fonts and margins, you should give WYMeditor a try.
We also fully support Internet Explorer 6, for those poor souls who have no choice.
