Lightbulb any ideas about best app for this?

Hello, I am trying to keep a sort of diary that contains links and images as well as text. HTML or Word is what I used to use but why I don't know. I tried OpenOffice but is too slow and unresponsive, don't like the feel of Mozilla Edit and Quanta has a bug that keeps inserting newlines into my file. I like fullscreen console and I have been using VI and nano but have grown tired of switching back and forth between x and console. I like the way the writing is easy on the eyes in the console. I reckon that could be as deciding factor. I don't like Bluefish, text is too shaky? The best thing I have ttied is Kwrite, perfect to look at but doesn't support image insert. I suppose what I am looking for is a text editor that supports insertion of images. I can't justify another download of Mozilla just for Font AA. I only have a crappy 56k connection. I suppose this is a bit of an essay but if anyone has any ideas - thanks. Is there any that I haven't tried. It can bea as simple as text editor just with a bit extra.

I tried Gnotepad+, the latest but it wouldn't compile. The libraries are all there but there is an odd message about not being able to find GTK. I have the latest version but I noticed that it was looking in /usr//bin for it. Notice the two forward slashes. I don't know if this is right or what. I might just stick to OpenOffice. From all the graphical editors, it is the most pleasing on the eyes. Thanks

gedit is nice for light edit, I use it to do java code editing, it should be good for html too. I like the multiple tabs view.
