    You will not get anything like dreamweaver in linux, though there are some good apps out there like n|vu, bluefish (?) and Quanta, and the one linked to mozilla's browser.

    I tend to type the whole thing by hand in a text editor

    Real geeks don't use WYSIWYG :P But if you still want WYSIWYG, try Nvu.

    I use Quanta Plus.

    Web Design Software

    I tend to do my web designs in a text editor also (most gEdit, sometimes vim).

    However, I hear that nvu and bluefish are all right, just never tried them.

    I've used Bluefish in the past and was very pleased with it...

    If you want a consistent UI look, go for Bluefish for GNOME and Quanta for KDE.

    I used to use Bluefish. I dont recall seeing any WYSIWYG editor features mind.

    Then i changed back to Quanta+. My reasoning for this, cos Bluefish sometimes goes a bit haywire with syntax coding. and there's no logical reasonning behind it. (Well, none that i could find)

    but personally i dont use WYSIWYG. i never have.

    and now i tend to write PHP rather than HTML, it's a bit harder to have a WYSIWYG front end
