Bluefish, if I have to have tags generated, it's Tidy integration is very nice.
I prefer using gedit though, most of the time.

Quanta is not working for me, too much of it's functionality is filled with errors (and it was version 3.2.3 I mind you!!!), it's a buggy piece of code (or is it just Kommander, that's buggy?).

I haven't really found any GUI Web editor I like. For me it is still vi, emacs, or my favorite, Epsilon. I do a lot of PHP and perl and haven't found any of the GUI editors to really work for me. I know HTML and don't need drop-down menus etc. to help me out.

You forgot not one, but the TWO top options in my Opinion... Eclipse with Web development plugins, and FireFox Web Developer extension.

I gotta go for NVu 'cos that's what I use. It's good for setting up a page WYSIWYG, and then you can attack the code, 'cos its still clean.

definately Bluefish, I can open 500 files in a BLuefish session, do regular expression replaces in those 500 files, modify the menu contents and shortcut key combinations, it's definately a good production environment. Quanta might be good for small html-only websites, but for big production sites with PHP there is no better choice then Bluefish.
