Linux web page authoring software like MS Frontpage 2000

I've already had some great help here with my new Linux Mint installation thanks. So while I am on a roll can I ask about web page authoring software please? In Windows I use Frontpage 2000, is there anything similar for Linux please? Thanks

I'm assuming that you're not looking for something to put Frontpage widgets into your pages. There are several good editors out there like Bluefish, NVu, and Quanta. If you're looking for something more complex, you might consider a full IDE.

"Kompozer" is indeed what nVu is called these days and is quite a bit more stable than the last version of nVu I used. It's even available for use on Windows platform.

Unlike Frontpage though it produces proper html, rather than MS's interpretation of it

I use seamonkey, which has a composer (nvu) application in it's suite which you open from the "tools" dropdown menu. The application is identical whether you use the linux version of seamonkey or the windows version. It's much more stable than nvu.
