Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Tinkster is spot on -- there are no WYSIWYG HTML editors that I can recommend, on any platform.
Dreamweaver is by far the best out there: it really is orders of magnitude better than anything else; nothing else comes close. But even with Dreamweaver, it is still very easy to produce extremely poor quality code.
Gripmaster, I know how it is to get used to something in MS Windows and then have to learn a different way. Bluefish has code completion to some degree. Bluefish is a very fast, flexible and powerful system for creating widely varied web content. Therefore, it can't automatically know what you want to do. Like any other complicated application, you have to learn how to communicate with it. Dreamweaver is great for some things, but in the grand scheme of web content creation, Dreamweaver doesn't do very much. Bluefish does pretty much everything, but you need to use other tools, also. I have to apologize for linux having such a steep learning curve when it comes to writing web content or programming, but when you learn how to do something in linux it works better than anything in MS Windows. You can also try xemacs, with a plugin for HTML completion to do editing. The original emacs is the best editor, period. But, it literally does everything, from the keyboard. So, it is slow to learn, but fast once you learn it.
