Are you advocating WYSIWYG?  This is diametrically wrong.

If you are looking at the appearance of a document, you can have no idea what it will look like after you add a single character to make that final editing correction: the amount of consequential change is unlimited. If you are instead looking at the structure of a document, you may not know its precise appearance either before or after the edit, but you can be sure that both appearances will be what you are happy with.
