Quanta is very good

Quanta works very well for me most of the time. I am sure I don't know 10 % of it's capabilities but it does what I want quickly and does not get in my way like most "easy to use" editors do. Yeah vi or emacs work as well for a quick change.

Close call between Quanta and Nvu. I'll admitt that Nvu's Windows version was the reason I voted for Quanta. It's so buggy.

I cannot figure out how to connect to a server 'securely' using Quanta. I believe I will make a thread about that but I wanted to point it out here. Other than that, I voted for Quanta because it's a very useful program.
Use the sftp or fish protocol in the upload dialog.

sorry but for me I aint kidding
the best HTML code editor is Kwrite

it has the widest range of code-highlighting (more than bluefish)
it has collapse-expand notes .. and other stuff

true it doesn't have say - an inbuilt ftp client
bluefish is cute but annoying
screem makes me do the same
quanta+ keeps losing windows
both these two are too visually complex
NVU is Mozilla Composer with pretty icons
2 years hardly any comparable progress -
ie compare how Firefox evolved Mozilla extremely fast.

ginf : I've never heard of it .. so i will check it out

It is the only software (along with the fish:// kio_slave) I *really* miss when I'm stuck on windows at work.

I am really looking forward to seeing the next generation with integration into kdevelop. Hopefully this will mean we'll have visual Object representation and class member autocompletion :P

Oh and for all those old-school types saying vi... you CAN use the embedded VIM KPART into Kate (the quanta editing component) so it should make you feel at home

Out of the options, I've only used Quanta, which I like very much. But I still just use Kate for HTML editing most of the time.
