The OS is fairly irrelevant. HTML is HTML no matter the OS. What you need is a guide to "Editors that Rock!". Which there isn't one, that I know of. But there are plenty of people that will share their favorite editor.

My Two Cents
vi is a good editor. Command line based, takes some getting used to. Does syntax highlighting. Probably not the ideal editor for someone who doesn't like the command line.

Kate is also a good editor in KDE. Nice GUI, fairly easy to learn. Also works with Perl, Shell scripts, PHP, and various other languages.

Quanta is the best editor in KDE I've used yet. Great GUI, easy to learn. Has some bug checkers in it. Nice attribute tree pane. Highly recommended.

Now if you want to get into running a web server in linux, that's a whole other thing. There are several servers out there, but the most popular is Apache. There are lots of sites around to help you install and configure it.

You can get some web tips and tricks here . And here you can find many html links.
Or, just use google to search for html tutorials, books, etc.

Mozilla Editor.

Gedit is the best.

PHPedit is also good.

Making a webpage is that easy; it's making things look pretty that's the artistic bit

Quanta + and Screem are also excellent web-editors, I'm partial to bluefish tho.

You might also look at nvu if you like a WYSIWYG html editor. I reccomend actually learning to code however, it make debugging so much easier.

This is how it all starts:

I would vote for gedit or nedit. I have used nedit a lot in creating my own web pages. You can create very useful macros in it and once you get used to its operation it is very flexible and almost (!) fun to use.

I have never yet found a WYSIWYG HTML editor that I could stand for more than a few minutes because every one I've tried (probably half a dozen) have been so SLOOOOW. And also, what I saw was NOT what I got! So what use were they?

I put nedit on the same workspace as the browser, and then all I have to do is save my HTML file, ALT+TAB to the browser, hit "refresh" on my webpage (local copy, that is), and voilą, there's my result in my browser. It becomes reflexive after a bit, and a fast way to create a page.

nvu is a good wysiwyg editor. Open Office also does ok at making basic web pages.

It is good to know basic HTML if you want to work with it , but if you are building a web page for fun, there is no need to spend hours mastering the code unless you really have that burning desire.

There is nothing wrong with a GUI and a WYSIWYG editor. As a linux newbie, many will try and shame you into learning how to code and script.

If you WANT to learn these things, it is good and more power to you. However , it's not necessary. Linux is about choices. If you choose fluffy GUI's and nice WYSIWYG HTML editors, that's cool too.
