Source Editor

FCKeditor offers you a possibility to view to the text you have written in the editing area in the HTML code. In order to view the HTML code press Image:Source.gif button on the toolbar.

Example:

Image:Source_example.png

After pressing Image:Source.gif button we can see the HTML code:

Image:Source_example2.png

If you want to go back to the normal text just press Image:Source.gif again.

Editing the code in the HTML language is a very difficult feature and it should only be done by advanced users. If you don't have experience in HTML type the text normally.
