Need suggestions on what to use for web developement

Hey everyone, I am wanting some suggestions on what I should use for web developement. From surfing the web, there were two apps that caught my attention, Quanta Plus and Bluefish.

Now I know that the two apps are pretty different considering that one is pretty much just an editor, while the other is more of a WYSIWYG. I am use to using Dreamweaver so Quanta Plus has more interest to me while Bluefish interests me because I think I would learn a lot more using it because I would actually need to do some real coding.

What I dont understand about Quanta is that it talks about KDE, I have blackbox, so I am confused on whether it is capable on my WM. Another thing is that I want to use flash and I did find a linux program that you can use to program flash, and I am wondering if I can import flash files into Quanta and Bluefish?

I have read a forum that exploded into an argument about flash and I dont want to start that. I dont think anyone will have a problem if I give the user a choice to choose between the flash page and a HTML page. Then all will be happy =).

So anyone have any suggestions on what I should do?

As a Linspire user, you might want to check out Nvu, as Linspire is its primary sponsor. Much like Dreamweaver, you can easily switch between multiple views, including WYSIWYG and code views. It does not require KDE or Gnome.

Any of these editors should import flash just fine.

I kinda stoped using was very slow and was having a lot of hardware complications. I am using Gentoo now, and have my computer almost completely customized how I want it now it is a speeding bullet compared to Linspire. Anyways, I dont event think Nvu can do that is kinda out of the question. Thanx for the reply, needing more suggestions.

Use FrontPage 2004.

Oh, wait, nevermind.

Um, if you're doing PHP, than any editor will do. I use Kate for either PHP or Java, but I'm on KDE. You can use whatever GUI tool you want for your layout then do your coding (which IS separate from the HTML, right?) in another editor.
