Bluefish is another fine editor. If you work also with PHP, it provides a nice "pre-made" function references for PHP, apache,SQL,C....etc...I remember there being a ton of references before, but it seems they cut back on them with this version...not sure, but besides all of that, the HTML end of the editor exceeds (in my opinion) what is out there now.

I simply use Kate. Beautiful syntax highlighting, but not much on the HTML user friendly end.
Abundant plug-ins and resources, as well as options galore.

Staroffice, Netscape, Office.org....all have some pretty nice built in HTML editors as well.

Dreamweaver and Front page...hmm....if you like sloppy HTML code viewed at source, HTML language output that is virtually Greek, and some compatibility issues with older browsers, those are the two to go with.

(not a fan of either, and to say they actually help a person learn HTML is literally ridiculous)

NVU is a nice little editor as well, and in time I do think they will narrow the transition from Dreamweaver and Frontpage with financial backing from Linspire, but hopefully without flash support because lord knows, the web certainly does not need more fricken 'flash'.

Quanta is simply the best for me, but i also like BlueFish. Why use vi when there are tools that can save you time and effort?

Exactly. I know quite a few guys who use Vim/Emacs, and swear by it for mostly open shell editing, which is fine and all, but for the most part, I download to my machine, edit there, and send it back up if I am not developing locally.

Quanta...I had that in my post above, but when I edited it, I must of erased it out of there. Quanta was my preferred editor until I ran across Bluefish, and then plain ol Kate stepped into my life..lol...

I even think Konqueror has a editor to, but I have never used it. I think it basically links into emacs or Vim if I remember correctly...
