we can use the Content Editor Web Part to add formatted text, tables, hyperlinks, and images to a Web Part Page in sharepoint. The Content Editor Web Part is intended for adding HTML content to a Web Part Page.It does not accept the HTML FORM element. There are three ways you can add content to the Content Editor Web Part:

Rich Text Editor :

We can use the Rich Text Editor to type formatted content automatically without prior knowledge of HTML syntax. Click the buttons on the Standard and Formatting toolbars at the top of the window to enter and format the content. Click Help on the Standard toolbar to display a summary of the tasks that you can perform and their corresponding buttons.

Source Editor:

 we can use the Source Editor to enter or modify HTML source code. The Source Editor is a plain text editor and is intended for users who are familiar with HTML syntax.
 Instead of editing content, you can link to existing content by entering a hyperlink to a text file that contains HTML source code.
