If all you want to do is change text on an existing site, you don't
need to know HTML, and you can just use a regular text editor. If you
want to change content with HTML, best learn HTML (it's not more
difficult than learning to use a WYSIWYG program), because WYSIWYG
doesn't really exist.

You don't speak/write English? Did you check this groop? Than you would
have noticed that this is an international group that uses English to
communicate (mainly). Using English gives you a better chance to get a
response.

Also, had you checked this group you would have seen it is all about
_html_. So asking about altering content without knowledge of markup is a
bit tricky. But hey, you're not the first to ask.
So, had you browsed through this group or searched it with Google, you
would probably have found several threads about WYSI(n)WYG editors, the
pro's and con's, and which is 'good' (very relative).

My bet is, you are better of with a properly set up CMS that with a
WYSI(n)WYG editor. If you really need an editor, I've heard good things
about NVU, <URL:http://www.nvu.com/>. I've never used it, but it seems to
do a relatively proper job, not messing up the markup too much.

I used it briefly to test it out, and found that while it will produce
valid/well-formed markup, it likes to throw a lot of unnecessary and
unwanted style attributes throughout the document, particularly with
copy & paste operations.

Client-side or server-side?
The former is unlikely to work, since *everything* can be messed up with
user input then. Server-side you would at least need a simple CMS of
sorts and an integrated 'rich text editing' script (google: designmode,
htmlarea). (E.g. with the basic PHP XML/expat functions you could
fairly trivially ensure well-formed input, content model restrictions
etc, and output an xml backend and an html frontend then. That's fairly
bullet-proof. Other languages have similar or better options.)

If it has to be client side, and if the user is unexperienced with HTML
but fairly tech-savvy, the by far best editor I know is not any WYSIWYG
but Emacs with nxml mode, which provides real time schema validation
(that would obviously require xhtml syntax) as you (stop to) type and
marks input errors on spot. Should be sufficient for editing textual
content.

There's a bundled win32 package at TEI:

There are CMS packages (e.g. the upcoming WordPress 2.0, for example) that
also embed a high-quality WYSIWYG editors. These editors /sometimes/ pro-
duced fairly clean HTML code. I heard good things about NVU (as suggested
elsewhere), but I think it's 'healthier' never to depend on desktop-side
software and have no hands-on experience with raw HTML.

<snip>

The real problem is when it has a subject line that appears to be in
English.

But "WYSIWYG-Editor" also appears in the body. Google doesn't seem to
get anywhere with translating this from German. And according to it,
the German for "WYSIWYG-Editor" is "WSSIWSE-Herausgeber".

oops, that was by mistake. Sorry, I didn't really want to post German in an
international newsgroup.
But I'm still looking for more recommendations for a simple wysiwyg editor.

To those who tell me that I should learn HTML, or that I should set up a
CMS - please reread my question. I'm a web professional, and this is simply
not what I need here. I need a good and simple wysiwyg editor for a
non-HTML-speaker who is only supposed to edit content parts of static pages.

NVU looks pretty good at first glance though, thanks for the recommendation!
if anyone know another one, I'd be grateful.
