Question Graphical HTML Editor


I am a former Windows user who has now converted all the way over to Linux Mandrake 9.2. I have a website that I used to edit with Dreamweaver and/or Frontpage. Is there anything like this for Linux, that still alows that nifty Edit/Html/Preview kinda thing like frontpage? I have looked at a few things but I want peoples opions first.

Try also Quanta

http://quanta.sourceforge.net/

Its my choice for HTML editing under Linux. I doubt you will find something like Dreamweaver, but HTML is such a simple tag language... I understand what peoples see at dreamweaver, but the same good thing could be achieved with a good html editor

I enjoy the simplicity of using Dreamweaver and/or Frontpage. Sometimes I don't wanna have to pick through tags. I will consider Quanta but GINF is looking like what I need. BTW Whats the deal with all the programs starting with "g"? Like GIMP, GAIM, GINF? How many other programs start with G that are handy to have.

I think it's because they are gtk-based, as Gnome, gaim too . Quanta is qt-based though

And apps that begin with a "K" usually use Qt and Kde's toolkits. And thoose who start out with a "Q" are Qt based.

I see the NVU no difference from Mozilla composer except that the CSS editor is added.

"BTW Whats the deal with all the programs starting with 'g'?"

Perhaps, some applications the "G" stands for gtk, but I know specifically in Gaim, Gnome, and others, it stands for GNU (which stands for "GNU's Not Unix"). Since the majority of "Linux" implementations/distributions (I'd say all, but I've had obtuse people say otherwise) are based on GNU/Linux.

Gnome programs start with 'g'.
KDE programs start with 'K'.
Java programs start with 'j'.

It refers to the platform they run.

"It refers to the platform they run."

Well, technically, you could consider "GNU" a platform. I know for a fact, that Gaim stands for "GNU AOL Instant Messenger", and GNOME stands for "GNU Network Object Model Environment". GNOME is an official GNU project as well (I'm not 100% sure about Gaim, despite the name in the acronym). Anyhow, "g" standing just for Gnome is a bit of a misgnomer ;-)
