any good html editors for redhat 9?


newbie here
i was wondering if someone can recommend a good html editor?
i have been using html kit, but it does not support linux. i have read a couple of threads and a few members use bluefish. can someone guide me step by step how to download it and install it. im still learning my way around the console. any advise will be appreciated

it may be on your install CDs - under the development section in the package manager - check there first

download....
Goto the homepage, and download it.... you may find a binary, or you may have to compile from source.

if you have a binary, it will probably be in rpm form, to install rpm
'rpm -Uvh /path/to/rpm/package_name.rpm'

if you get dependency failures, then seach your install cd's or http://rpmfind.net for the package u need.

OR, if you have source code, make sure you have development tools installed.
your compiler.... and rpobably X-development stuff.

tar -zxf /path/to/the/archive to decompress .tar.gz or .tgz files
tar -jxf /path/to/the/archive to decompress .tar.bz2 files
unzip /path/to/zip to decompress zip files

cd /path/to/decompressed/archive/archine
./configure
make
make install

if any errors pop up dureing the configure stage, resolve them.

I think composer is a separate application (not certain about this).
Some other apps to consider for graphical editing are Quanta, Amaya, and Nvu. As for text editing, there's really not a lot of difference between apps...Vim is as useful as Bluefish in this respect.

It's not a separate application from Mozilla Suite, however it's not included with the Mozilla Firefox. If you are using Debian: apt-get install bluefish or download Bluefish from their webpage.

I prefer Quanta Plus, which is for KDE and comes as part of KDE.

i've installed bluefish on my redhat 9 box but am having problems changing the font it uses. on options/preferences/editor it's set to use courier 11 and when i change it to verdana 10 there's no option to save it. i've tried going back to options and clicking on "save settings" while the window's still open but that doesn't save it. can anyone help?

snakeo2 have you tried apt? http://apt.freshrpms.net/
when it's installed you just open up a terminal, su then type "apt-get install quanta or quanta plus and it'll install it for you. same for bluefish or any other program.
