Netscape composer-like HTML editor?


I need an HTML editor with an interface similar to the composer in Netscape and Seamonkey. One of my courses calls for an HTML editor and suggests one of those two. I tried to get Seamonkey, but it's not in my repositories and does not seem to have a deb package. So far, I've been running the Windows version of Seamonkey in XP in a virtual machine. I would like to find a better solution.
I don't have time to worry about compiling from source; I'm still a novice at it. What else can I use?

You can download Seamonkey and extract it on a directory of your choice. Since it's precompiled you don't need to worry about compiling. After that you can run it like this:
Code:
/path/to/seamonkey-x.y.z/seamonkey
or 
/path/to/seamonkey-x.y.z/seamonkey -edit (to start the composer)
Regards

Whether I use the shell script or ./seamonkey, I get this error message:
Quote:
(seamonkey-installer-bin:25043): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
It doesn't matter anymore. I found out about Iceape, and downloaded it instead. Thank you for your help.

Just a FYI. This happens when you try to run the program from CLI, or from an xterm but as a different user than the one that's logged in X.
