Looking for HTML Editor


I am looking for an HTML type editor I can use with Ubuntu.
I am used to 'NoteTab Pro' with the Windows system, and am looking for possibly an equivalent for Linux (Ubuntu) use.
I found 'Notepad++' but am unable to download it to see if it is close to the same??
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Len.

Smile Solved???

Solved, or partially.
Went to Linux.org, to applications, to development tools, to HTML editor, found BLUEFISH! Great.
Now, how to load NoteTab files (created under windows) into Bluefish. A question that I can also use help with. Is there something that has to be done, like when loading documents form Windows to Open Office Org. word processor??
Thamks, Len.

Kompozer, Bluefish

I've been using a combination of Kompozer (and it's ancestor Nvu) and Bluefish for a couple of years and I'm quite happy with them.

Thamks, Len.
I don't quite follow the question. html files are just text files with a different extension. You can open them and edit them in any text or html editor. NoteTab is one such text editor; a really nice one, to be sure, but in the end all it does is create bog-standard text files. All HTML-creation programs like Bluefish are really nothing more than fluffed-up, dedicated text editors.

There's only one thing that you might have to worry about in switching to *nix, and that's that unix uses a different code for encoding text file line-endings than Dos/Windows. But most text editors can read files with either type of ending, and many of them can convert them as well. There are also dedicated dos-unix applications as well, such as flip, that can be used to batch-convert files.

And linux has a thing called dos2unix or tofrodos that will convert DOS like line endings in UNIX style line ending.

Say, if you are using Ubuntu, it is a lot easier than pulling applications off some external site. Just check out System > Admin > Synaptic, look for Bluefish, check the box and click on apply. The advantage of using synaptic is that it will make sure that the application is properly integrated with the rest of the system and that updates are done automatically.

I quite liked Quanta Plus as well. Though not as small as other editors, still a nice editor to have for web programmers. Allows syntax highlighting and completion. I like that. Also gives a preview of what an HTML page would look like.

Thanks, Len.

Hi, As another new Linux user who's used NoteTab for years under Windaze, I too am loking for a replacement.

The one thing I haven't been able to find in the Linux world is a prog with NoteTab's setting to automatically save all open files in their tabs on closing the prog, so they're opened again on re-starting - which I've found a VERY useful function.

Can anyone point me at a text editor with this function?

Thanks,
Rud
