What's a text editor?
A text editor is a program that allows you to read and edit documents, including the source code for web pages.

Text editors vary in complexity and ability. Some allow only the most basic reading, writing, and editing functions. Advanced editors may have color-coding of programming commands, built-in macros, and other features.

Some examples of text editors include: Notepad, Wordpad, Emacs, and VI.
