The Text Editor has fewer options, but allows you to write your posts in HTML. This editing mode is aimed at users who are comfortable working with HTML. When you need to add some font style, or paste in code from an outside source, you can use the Text editor.

Switching between the Visual and Text editing modes is easy. Just use the tabs directly above the right side of the editing area.

A Word Of Caution

Switching between Visual and Text view can cause some of your HTML entities to be lost. This is due, in part, to the manner in which TinyMCE handles your HTML. If formatting is very important, do not switch between views. If you’re writing a lot of code, we suggest you remain in the text editor.
