nvu seems to be the happening WYSIWYG editor. Based on, but apparently much different from, Mozilla Composer. OOo has a web editor, too. And, yeah, I guess wine is an option, but seems like a long way to go.

If you didn't need WYSIWYG, you could look into quanta (requires KDE), bluefish (max effects with Gnome, but only needs GTK), or versatile plaintext editors which have features for all kinds of text, like vim or nedit. I use bluefish, nedit, and vim as the mood or system conditions strike.

Nvu is nice, too. It's from Mozilla, too.

Install error

i downloaded the latest version of nvu, extracted it and went to run nvu, got an error,
[root@localhost mozillab]# cd /root/nvu-0.90
[root@localhost nvu-0.90]# dir
bloaturls.txt regxpcom
chrome res
components.ini LICENSE shlibsign
defaults mangle xpcshell
defaults.ini mozilla-xremote-client xpicleanup
elf-dynstr-gc nsinstall xpidl
extensions nvu xpt_dump
greprefs libsoftokn3.chk nvu-bin xpt_link
icons nvu-config plugins regchrome
[root@localhost nvu-0.90]# ./nvu
/root/nvu-0.90/ line 159: 10177 Segmentation fault "$prog" ${1+"$@"}
[root@localhost nvu-0.90]# ./nvu
/root/nvu-0.90/ line 159: 10195 Segmentation fault "$prog" ${1+"$@"}
[root@localhost nvu-0.90]#

maybe theres a dependency i dont have? i installed mozilla suite and heres what happened,

[root@localhost mozilla]# dir
chrome regchrome
components registry
defaults regxpcom
greprefs res
init.d mozilla xpicleanup
install.log mozilla-bin mozilla-xremote-client plugins
[root@localhost mozilla]# ./mozilla

after hitting enter it just hangs there

Are you running a graphic environment as normal user and do those root commands via a terminal? Then you might want to try running it as normal user though it's strange you don't get any errors.
