With the growing popularity of CMS, Wikis and Weblogs, WYSIWIG-editors lose their users. However, many of those editors offer many advantages, such as Integration of SVN, FTP Clients, Developer’s extensions and programming environments. Using them, you can save your time and increase your efficiency. Not every code has to be written in Notepad, not every problem has to be solved manually. Therefore some good starting points for improving your WYSIWYG-skills can be useful.
You might be willing to use at least some of them for your next projects. Particularly video-tutorials are amazing, don’t forget to check them out.

“In this tutorial I’m going to outline two different styles of content which broadly encompasses the two primary sets of web content that get converted to feeds — Single Pages and Directories.

Directories contain multiple HTML files, each of which contains a single story and links to each must be entered in the RSS feed.
