Open-Source Front Page Equivalent?


Hello.

I'm new to Linux--I'm currently in the process of installing Fedora.

My plans are to use Open Office for Linux, and Nero for Linux, in addition to any other office software that's available or included in Fedora.

One question: Is there an open-source version of an HTML editor, similar to Front Page? Does Open Office's Linux word processor save to HTML format? Just curious.

Thank you! J. Danniel (Please call me Jd.)

- Use K3b for burning.

- Learn HTML and CSS. (Take a look at Quanta too)

Thanks for the tip about Quanta. Is it WYSIWYG? If not, is there a WYSIWYG HTML editor for Linux? I should have asked about WYSIWYG initially.

(By the way...I do know HTML and can hand-code. That's not the point. It's not so much for me, as it is for people I need to collaborate with.)

Also, I need to experiment with Mount Rainier packet writing. Does k3b support Mount Rainier?

Thank you.

Quanta is not an HTML generator but an IDE.

Tell them to learn HTML. I don't like HTML generators, but you might want to take a look at Nvu.

I don't know. What is Mount Rainier? Could you provide a link?

I assure you...a dozen senior citizens are not likely to be receptive to learning a new language such as HTML. So, let's focus on WYSIWYG right now.

But Nvu sounds like it's in the right ball park. I'll download it and try it out when Linux is finally installed on my second computer.

Mount Rainier is a method of packet writing that greatly reduces the formatting time of a CD. Normally, even with a 24x CD-RW, it can take several minutes to format a disk for direct-to-disk data transfer.

Mount Rainier reduces the overall formatting time to mere seconds. All of the major packet writing software for Windows, such as DirectCD, InCD, Drag-to-Disc, FileCD, and Sonic DLA, support it. I believe I read somewhere about Mount Rainier being in the Linux kernel, but on the command line level. I was hoping to see if Nero Linux supported it via a graphical interface.

These same senior citizens (I volunteer at a local library and teach basic computing) are less apt to learn a CD/DVD mastering program than just copy-to-disk a la a floppy. They're interested in Linux because of the cost.

Mount Rainier will work only on drives that have Mount Rainier capabilities. Not all do. For example, I am not familiar with any CD/DVD combo drive that supports it. I'm almost positive it's CD only.

I hope that's enough information about it to open the door. A simple Google search should provide you with a lot more information, although I don't know how much is available for the Linux platform.

Thanks for the feedback! Jd

nVu is an excellent wysiwyg editor, I used it to learn html. I think it's better than frontpage. More along the lines of Dreamweaver.
