The default editor for both front-end and back-end users in Joomla! is the TinyMCE editor.

TinyMCE is a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor that allows users a familiar word-processing interface to use when editing Articles and other content. The 3-row toolbar below provides many standard editing commands:
