Rich Text

Text which allows inline formatting, such as bold or italics.

Note that this does not necessarily mean WYSIWYG. WYSIWYG is an editorial interface (such as a WYSIWYG editor), while rich text is a format. Markup languages such as Markdown, Textile, and even HTML itself are rich text, but can be editing with non-WYSIWYG tools.
