Not a TextEditor.

Word processors include text editors, but have a different orientation. A text editor assumes the end product is an electronic file. A word processor assumes the end product is a printed page, and includes not only facilities to create and edit text, but also facilities to control the appearance of the output, including fonts, text attributes, margins, justification, and often colors and embedded images.

There is a WordProcessorFamily on TextEditors. Some of them are:

Sometimes, it is nice to use a MarkupLanguage instead of a WordProcessor so that the power of the TextEditor as well as the power of a MarkupLanguage can be used to build higher-order constructs.

Some word processors, such as XyWrite, WordPerfect, or IBM DisplayWrite, include a MarkupLanguage that you can optionally show or hide.

On the other hand, some word processors are much more properly termed DesktopPublishers.
