What about WYSIWYG Applications?


Hi

Searching i found some WYSIWYG programs but i didn't found nothing good. Does exist some good program like Dreamweaver for run into linux?..

Which programs do you use for create web pages?

And a question to the professionals web designers...
Is GIMP the best graphic editor program?... I saw it a bit *crappy*.

Thanks!

What have you tried? You did a search, so I am assuming you tried both Quanta and Bluefish and didn't quite like them?

You can use straight up 'vim' to edit your html, it's just text after all

WYSIWYG though, I'd say Quanta (which is what I use)

Cool

I keep my old Netscape 4.79 knocking around for just this. Mozilla is good but it has trouble making links. I still rely on NS4.7. Quanta is good but doesn't have true wysiwyg.

I'm not arguing, but am aparently mis-understanding something..

What is a "true" What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get editor? Not examples, but rather a definition

Thanks

Cool

There are none for Linux except Mozilla Composer, I think the Quanta team want to do something like Dreamweaver.

The GIMP is the best there is. If you think it's poor, then you simply need to look again, it's used by *many* professionals. The new version of the GIMP looks a lot better, has some new features, better font support etc. Build it (the 1.3.x series) if you want to play, but the 1.2.x series is stable.

Most of us are HTML literate or computer programmers, so we just write the pages directly.

Nice, clean, efficient code. None of those BS tags that are inserted randomnly.

vim + Blackbox + aterm (or console)
/me drools.

I use gnp (GUI) or the mc editor (CL) and hand edit my pages. WYSIWYG editors don't write pages very well and they load slower than hand edited, well written ones.

it all depends on what you want to create - some sites would take
a long time to create without proper editors. *runs off before
being swept into another endless convo..
