Ditto the text editor recommendation.  Bluefish and Quanta Plus also work well.

Re: good html editor ?

If you prefer a wysiwyg editor, the best open source project is probably kompozer.  Definitely doesn't generate perfect clean code, but it gets you started.

Re: good html editor ?

You'll get way farther without the WYSIWYG. Learn the HTML your self. Geany is the best IMO.

Re: good html editor ?

It depends how often you are creating sites.  If you are only creating a personal home page, WYSIWYG editors are perfectly fine.  No need to learn a new language for something you do once or twice a year.

I understand you people obviously know your stuff, but you can't assume what the OP's usage is.  Why post four responses to someone's question that doesn't answer their question?

Re: good html editor ?

I use emacs, geany, bluefish, editra, whatever.  Mostly emacs via gnuclient.  What about Amaya, though?  I just fired up amaya 10 to look at it, and it seeeeemmmmms great.

Re: good html editor ?

So far i tried bluefish,geany and komposer.
komposer looks good, but crashes on my system(conflict with kde4?).
geany is pretty good.

Re: good html editor ?

I am also a geany fanboy for HTMLing smile

Edit: But if you really need a WYSIWYG, you might try Quantum Plus. I don't like WYSIWYGs at all, but this one is free and should do its job.

Re: good html editor ?

Another +1 for Geany, although I don't like the latest version... hmm

But I definitely must +1 learning HTML yourself. If you do try, make absolutely sure you keep the following things in mind so you don't get confused/sidetracked/taught the wrong info:
- Tables, unlike many say, are not 100% wrong for all cases. They're just bad when you use a hidden table to hold the layout of a page together. It makes the web harder to index by search engines and also makes your HTML hard to maintain and generally very messy.
- Your best bet is to learn about HTML5 and XHTML; the latter is quite a controversial subject but at least a knowledge of it can help. I've heard a few cool things about HTML5, but sadly many browsers don't fully implement it. However, if you learn these you'll hit the ground running as you'll essentially know what the next generation of the Web will use for markup. And since I'd imagine only geeky types would focus on this sort of thing, you'll likely get very good information.
- At least get a basic grasp of CSS.
- IE is bad, no matter what anyone tells you. Force Firefox or similar on everyone you know big_smile

Windows was made for looking at success from a distance through a wall of oversimplicity. Linux removes the wall, so you can just walk up to success and make it your own.

Re: good html editor ?

Actually, as much as I hate to say it, IE has had fewer security vulnerabilities discovered in recent years than Firefox. There is a real possibility that IE7 is a more secure browser on Windows than Firefox is.

Secure != conforming to standards, doing what's expected, etc.

Re: good html editor ?

HTML doesn't really need anything expect good highlighting.
I'd suggest geany, nano, vim or scite.

The difference is that Firefox on Windows updates itself everytime it starts (and Mozilla is very quick at releasing bugfixes).
IE doesn't do this, Microsoft only has their monthly patch-day.
=> Firefox is really more secure.

I'd say it does: a good set of macros so that one can type, e.g., <ah and get <a href="<++>"></a> with the cursor in the correct place for the href value, and then jumping between the tags with <tab>. I'm referring to the html package in vim here.

Re: good html editor ?

I've started using vim in the past few days. It's awesome, and as hard as it may seem at first, vimtutor really helps.
