    Re: hey just a question

    Are you sure that it shouldn't be

    What you see is what you get? (although the sense isn't really different then)


    I know it as part of the computer language. The visual image you see on your computer screen is that what you get when you print it. Also you can find the abbreviation WYSIWYG used in this context.

    You're welcome.

    I've just found out that "What you get is what you see" is a song of Tina Tuner. So you might have come accross the title of this song.
