If you don't mind too much dealing with the HTML code itself, I recommend the Bluefish editor:

Also, for Linux downloads you can check out Freshmeat:

Quanta is very good, but doesn't yet (as far as I know) run under KDE3, if that's an issue. Otherwise, bluefish should take care of you.

Quanta will run under kde3, you need to get it from kde cvs.
Login to the CVS server using this command:
'cvs login'
(just press ENTER when prompted for password)

Checkout the latest alpha Quanta Plus code from the repository.
'cvs co quanta'

Change into the $QUANTA_SRC/admin directory:
'cd ~/quanta/admin'

And issue the following command:
'cvs update -P -C -d -R -r KDE_3_0_BRANCH'

Change into the $QUANTA_SRC directory:
'cd ~/quanta' or 'cd ..'

Execute the CVS makefile:
'make -f Makefile.cvs'

Run Configure:
'./configure --prefix=[/base/path/to/install/quanta]'

If no errors are reported, run the following commands:
'su -c "make install"' (enter root password to install Quanta Plus)

There is more info on this sourceforge page.

I used screem, amaya, and bluefish and by far Quanta is the best yet. I switched from GoLive on a mac and I really enjoy using Quanta...

Freshmeat is another good place to look for any Linux goodies:

Did anyone mention vi

You might also want to look at august, but Bluefish is getting there.
