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.

Vim and Firefox with webdeveloper extension.
Last WYSIWYG HTML editor I used was MS FrontPage first version (11 years ago??).
If you need/want to have full control over your code, learn (X)HTML/CSS and use a good (and fast) text editor.
Any text editor with syntax highlighting does it for me (I don't care too much about code-folding, I find it annoying and not particularly useful). I use nedit for lots of stuff. A light IDE would be geany (which I sometimes use), it supports many many languages (HTML, XML, CSS, SQL, Perl, PHP, JS, and more).
(Unfortunately, I don't see lisp on there )

I agree that an editor is fast and reliable. I just want to use a WYSIWYG editor. A bit lazy. Or should I say, got too much on my to do list and would like to take an easy way out.
I've been working on my pages with Nvu an it really is not that bad. Just no support documentation, themes or general plug ins. Plus, I've had several hangs. I might do a reinstall or just create my own.
I thought about Firefox and the extensions. I think Quanta Plus looks promising, I might give it a shot.
If you're after wysiwyg then Quanta Plus isn't the way to go IMHO.
I'm pretty old school I started off web "designing" in pico, later used some others like notepad(!) and more recently have used Jedit, Dreamweaver, Eclipse, Nvu (great for tables as I recall) and a few others until settling on Quanta Plus. It was well flaky about 2 years ago but seems reasonably solid now - it's got the main features (for me, as I use PHP templates) of code hints, highlighting, uploading changed files, drag and drop img insert (in code) and regex based search-replace. I do miss the search facilities in Jedit and the plugins in Q+ are lame.
It has a sort of live preview but the preview doesn't use any of the CSS and can't easily (for me at least) be editted in. But then DW never got my CSS pages right, far from it!
If anyone knows of a wysiwyg that does proper CSS with fluid multi-column layouts then I'm out of business^H^H^H^H^H^H^H, I mean let me know.
