html editor software


As you see I have been asking a lot of questions, its all because I don't want to go back to window's this time.

I need to install all software that are needed....

I have slackware 10, I have found some html editing software.... I would take your suggestions first, I do have a site and am looking for an HTML editing software, what would you recommend?

Thanks for giving your time.

Do you want a text editor or a what you see is what you get program? I like quanta at times other time I just use a text editor like vi or bluefish.

darkleaf: the power of <strike>christ</strike> emacs compels you ... does vi do syntax highlighting/coloring?

anyways, I'd recommend emacs, with html-mode or html-helper-mode (plus there's of course php-mode, nxml-mode, css-mode and w3-mode). But then again, you gotta find out by yourself which editor is right for you. Note that emacs and vi have a slightly steeper learning curve that the run-of-the-mill gui editors, but are much more powerful (at least I know emacs is -- never took the time to learn vi beyond the (imo) stupid mode-switching).

Use quanta or bluefish. Why use something like vi or emacs when you have apps that are a lot easier to use.

reddazz: because they are much more powerful, that's why. Does bluefish have a per-buffer tab-width variable (or something to that effect)? Indent-region? How do you do the equivalet of M-< C-u 7 7 5 C-f?

... just my view.
