Dreamweaver -> ??

Whats the linux equivelant of dreamweaver? i need a good HTML editor for linux, preferably one that is visual and code like dreamweaver, rather than just a plaint HTML one. Any ideas? Or is there a way for me to get dreamweaver mx2004 running on linux?

The thing with linux is that most of the users are code "nuts" they wouldn't dream of using a drag and drop type gui application to code a web page.

I haven't seen one, if anyone has could you point us in the right direction.

I use Screem personally, and then view it with Firefox. I'm more of a "code nut" as well since I love programming in C++.

I use bluefish, but it also stays close to the code.

Another option you could go after is getting crossover.
Afair they support to run Dreamweaver on linux now as well as many other apps,
like Adopbe Photoshop, so not only MS Office.

Mozilla Composer is very visual.

Start it with:

mozilla -edit

...or even create a desktop launcher icon with that as the command line.

Hope you find quanta or bluefish useful.

There is nothing quite like Dreamweaver. The only WYSIWYG editors I'm aware of are:

Mozilla Composer
Nvu - an extended stand along version of Composer, currently in beta.
Quanta Plus - if you use the BE (bleeding edge) version along with KDE 3.2 you get WYSIWYG mode, although IMO it's not very well done at all.

You can also run Dreamweaver 4 and MX (but not 2004MX) under wine or crossover office.

Really though you're better off using DW under Windows if you really need it, but I find in the long run (if you want good quality clean code) you're better off just doing it by hand with a good text editor.
