WYGIWYG vs. WYSIWYG

WYGIWYG vs. WYSIWYG

I was delighted to see the article ''Some 'Phat' New Words'' (Etceteras column), July 31. I especially enjoyed seeing the word WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) - a word almost synonymous with Mac computers. Those of us who work with IBM-type computers dream of having WYSIWYG. We have to settle for WYGIWYG (''Wiggywig'') - What You Get Is What You Get.
