    Hi guys,
    I'm pretty new to all this CPanel stuff and started out using the inbuilt HTML editor to make changes to my website - however, I have since discovered there are other editors out there that work much better (for me) and have begun using one of these others instead. Now I simply upload the changed file(s) as required - which seems to work really well.

    However, in my public_html directory, there are 43 .wysiwygPro_edit and 43 .wysiwygPro_preview files that were generated (I think) by the system when I was using the CPanel editor.

    My questions are:
    1. Do these files serve any worthwhile purpose?
    2. If YES, what is that purpose?
    3. If NO, can I safely delete them?

    Here's a sample of the files so you all know which ones I'm talking about:

    .wysiwygPro_preview_terms_html.php
    .wysiwygPro_edit_diy_html.php

    MY gut feel is that it will be OK to get rid of them - but I thought I should check before I do.

    Please forgive me if someone else has asked this question before but I couldn't find anything similar in this or the other forums.
