Question Issues using NVU for Linux

I was able to install and run NVU on my Suse box here at work. My current consern with NVU it seems to have problems with logins. I tried using a site that I manage and I still get login errors. If I can get past that, then my only other consern is I'd like to know if NVU can handle image mapping? I know that Homesite does, and I have clients that love that feature.

Poking thru Nvu and it's help files, it looks like it provides an option to remove any image maps, but not a tool to create them...

As for the login stuff, it might just be a matter of settings, but I'd recomend what I do: I create a copy of the web site on my local computer (ok, I'm a geek who has a small server setup in my house....) and I do all my work on my local computer, then upload to the web site via FTP. This is not only faster to edit, but gives the added advantage that if you do something stupid and screw the site up royal, the real web site is still intact (... or maybe it's just me who gets the urge to try something new and not be enteirly sure what it will do... ).

Yoda, indeed. I also do all my editting locally before uploading a final version. It is far better because then you have almost no down time during the conversion. Unlike editting the files over the net. Which then you have the added issue(albiet sometimes only on exteremely rare occasion) of the net connection going down, or an outtage losing pretty much everything as the time out goes. Locally, you have no fear about that because it means no added downtime.

It can handle image mapping, btw, just like every other tect edittor on the planet. Just do it by hand if it doesn't WYSIWYG it for you. I use emacs anyway, and all my coding in html, xhtml, css, and php by hand, so I may be a bit jaded when it comes to what "does it support it" means to me.
