you should be able to find different apps on the net, maybe at linuxapps.com or do a search off other downloadable sites.. sourceforge.net has many many apps and projects.
don't know of one that is truly close to dreamweaver, but if you can't find one and can't stray from dw, then you can always emulate it with Wine or another windows emulator to run it under linux...

It's not that I can't stray from Dreamweaver at all. Last thing I want to do is start runnning Windows Emulators!

I only quoted DW as an example as it's a good balance between being easy to create with, without having to go into HTML itself, but still giving the option to play around with the HTML with ease.

Packages like Frontpage are terrible because they don't give you the flexibilty (or at least didn't a few years back when I started doing Web sites).

I've been and looked at sites like tucows and found some editors, but it's nice to get recommendations from people who have used packages.

that's cool... i use vi editor most of the time.. or a simple text editor when doing my html.. i haven't found one in linux i liked totally yet though either, so i just stick with the basics then.

i like dreamweaver though, hopefully one day they bring it over to linux...

frontpage sucks, used it long time ago and hate it.. not sure how well it is now, but i am sure its getting worse, since even their OS's are getting worse.. couldn't see why their apps would be getting better than their OS's. Better stop now though, don't want to spark a war.

I'm sure no-one here will object one bit if you slag of Micro$oft's products 'til the cows come home! <g>

Carry on, I enjoy a good anti M$ rant!
