Unhappy HTML Editor :(

Anyone know of a decent WYSIWYG HTML editor for Linux? I've been spoiled by Dreamweaver MX and can't find a single editor worth even a mention (that includes NS Composer).

Editorial: I cringe everytime I see a page with a "Made with VI" button on it!

Any suggestions?

I use the composer in Mozilla. It does everything I need for simple HTML.

That's what i'm starting to lean towards... it's just that I've read a few horror stories about mounting NTFS from Linux and I haven't been feeling up to the risk to try it!


I take that back... it mounted no problem.

Or you could learn html. It's quite easy, really, and has a few advantages over a WYSIWYG program - for example, you won't have people go nuts because they need to sidescroll to read your webpage (my most common problem with pages made with a WYSIWYG - people have a total disregard for others with smaller screens) and you will actually be learning something that may come in handy later on.

Good luck either way!

*seconds Snoof

HTML without WYSIWYG is like a fish without a
bicycle :}

I use Emacs for HTML :} and Mozilla to check
whether it looks acceptable ;) People who design
websites with a fixed resolution/colour depth in mind
should be put against the wall and put to death
with Windows eXPeriment Boxes
