I've never thought dreamweaver was very good. vi is much better.

If you are looking for something that is similar to the style of dreamweaver then try nvu or bluefish or you could just use dreamweaver.

Quanta and Bluefish are very good. As David said, you can just use Dreamweaver on Linux if you wish.

Yes, they are all opensource. I'd guess that at least one of them is already available with fedora but the official sites if you want to see the features of each are:
http://www.nvu.com
http://quanta.kdewebdev.org
http://bluefish.openoffice.nl

I just tend to prefer WYSIWYG coding tools where I can actually see the code. To be honest I've only ever used demo versions of dreamweaver and that was a while ago now but it seemed to want to control everything for you.

Uh... he did. And Dreamweaver is horrible. It has ugly code and is too controling. You can't do anything for yourself.

I do like Quanta. I haven't tried Nvu or Bluefish but have heard good things. They are all open source.

I would use dreamweaver but unfortunately my version of it (MX 2004) seems to execute but not actually run on WINE for some reason, I'll execute the file with WINE, then it'll just do nothing and drop to the terminal again without even trying to open a window...
