A decent web programming editor


I'm looking for a good editor to do webdevelopment (mainly PHP). I'm using Fedora 3 and would prefer a Gnome editor. I know gedit but that's a bit limited. Any suggestions?

I use quanta too, but it crashes often. Bluefish looks nice though. Nvu is not listed in my Fedora repositories.

Quanta has promise, but I do agree with evie: it dies all the time. Bluefish is the way to go! I especially like how modular it is (add external browser to preview in, etc, etc). The one thing it doesn't have is an in-house html preview (no biggie for me).
