Check http://quanta.sourceforge.net/ for a useful html authoring tool.

Mozilla composer is also good for getting your feet wet.

'does it require any compiler or something?'
No, just make a text file and open it with a browser. I think it considors files with the <html> tag in them as html.

Doesn't Quanta come with Slack? I think the package is called 'quanta-3.1.4-i486-1'. It should be on your cd.

I like to use Quanta for my site.

The basics for HTML are: Just write a .htm of .html file with your favorite editor, and open it with your browser! Nothing more to it ...

No programs needed to learn html. A simple text editor will get the job done. Get in here:

www.htmlgoodies.com

Do the tutorials for beginners there and in few hours you will be coding nice pages, freely from fancy expensive editors as Dreamweaver. Simple run your favorite editor (I use vim), save the document as .html or htm and open it from "file >> open" from your browser to see how it looks like and you are all set. There're no difference between .htm and .html. It happens because at the ages of Win3.1, you were able to ONLY save files with 3 characters extension. If you are running mozilla as web-browser, right click with the mouse anywhere and choose "View Page Source", to see how the page is done. You can learn a lot from it too.

If you are seriously into HTML, you should pay a visit to the World Wide Web Consortium website and learn the standards. Everyone who owns a website should know HTML, CSS, and web accessibility, IMO.

Excellent point. I think accessibility is a factor all too often neglected by webmasters. I'm going to check out that w3c site to see how my website stacks up.

Quanta 2 had some problems, but Quanta 3 rocks! I built my site using it, and would strongly recommend it to anyone interested in web design. You can use any text editor to write HTML, but using Quanta makes it a hell of alot easier.

That's the spirit Stick with a text editor and www.htmlgoodies.com. Later you can change to a fancy editor, but it's good to have a background with html, in the case you need to fix something into the code .
You not really need a preview function either. I usually code html like this:

In one of my desktops, I have only the browser, mozilla and the text editor (vim). As soon as I save the document, I switch to the browser, press f5 and I see how it looks like . It's so cool to code everything and have full control of what you doing . I love coding
