Technically, WMV is a codec and a container format*. There is a version of Windows Media Video (WMV) - codec version 9 (aka. WMV3), that is VfW (Video for Windows) compatible (more specifically, VCM) and as such, is able to be stored in an AVI container. Previous versions (WMV7 and WMV8, aka. WMV1 and WMV2, respectively) were more proprietary and generally didn't play well in non-WMV/ASF containers.
* to be more accurate, the WMV file format is an ASF (Advanced Systems/Streaming Format) container with a .wmv file extension.

The quality seems to be more than satisfactory for me so far (and I'm picky about quality). I just want to know what'll happen after I've saved my project before I go to the trouble of making a video just to find it doesn't look good at the end.
Also, I'm watching the clips I ripped as samples and the sound & the picture don't sync up by a few milliseconds (the mouth will move at the second syllable spoken instead of the first). This has happened after saving it in three different formats. This isn't a problem for editing, but I'd like to watch the videos on my computer, too, and that will bug me. So does anyone know what I'm doing wrong here? This didn't happen when I saved a few other things on my computer and I don't think I'm doing anything differently, so I'm confused. Unfortunately, the help section in the program is literally empty and I don't have a manual because I downloaded it and used a registration code.
Thanks for the help. I've read the guides several times over but sometimes you just can't beat talking to a real person. Since I'm the only editor around where I live this is the only place I can go for real help.
