WEBSITE
TEMPLATE
Website Template

designed webpage, simply by
adding your text and
customization to create your
desired web page. It is usually
built with HTML and CSS
code.
Back in the day, you actually
need to learn HTML and CSS
to be able to create a decent
website, but today, we use a
WYSIWYG editor. It allows
you to create and design a
web page without any coding
knowledge.
WYSIWYG
• the acronym for “What You See Is
What You Get”
• this means that whatever you type,
insert, draw, place, rearrange, and
everything you do on a page is what
the audience will see. It shows and
prints whatever you type on the
screen.
