    Linux WYSIWYG editors?

    Does anyone here use Linux and can recommend any WYSIWYG editors for web development? I currently run Dreamweaver under Wine but it regularly crashes and becomes non-responsive.
    Thanks.

    Give Amaya a try.

    Amaya is most definitely useful, but a bit awkward to use.

    You might try KompoZer, which is based on the Nvu editor if you're familiar with that.

    There is also Quanta Plus, though I find it rather large.

    That's all I can think of...

    That's because it forces you to think about the structure of the HTML. That's what makes it the only WYSIWYG that can generate proper HTML.

    Actually, I was referring to the way in which it is used in general, but perhaps my issue is a result of that fact you mentioned above. I agree about the proper HTML bit, too. Then again, it doesn't insert special JavaScript functions and the like for you to do image swapping.

    I think I'll try using it again... ^_^

    JavaScript for image swapping? How quaint.
