Heard of some web design program called nvu. It is a refit of Netscape Composer. Apparantly quite handy.

yap nvu is still on initial development, but it's usable for basic wysiwyg editing.

it also generate very clean html following w3c guidelines

Its currently version 0.2 I do believe. Others are quite fond of Bluefish.

I use Nvu 0.2 it's simple fast and clean.
Maybe few bugs, but just wait for new versions ... :)

I'm a bit skeptical of Linspire's involvement though to be honest. I wouldn't be so much if LSongs and Lphotos were GPL'd and their source easiy accessible. ;)

I love this app. I was spolied by homesite, and therefore I miss the intergrated ftp, but I reckon this guy will be implementing that feature in forthcoming versions.

check it out.

Yes, you must check out bluefish...
It's just great!

I would recommend Eclipse from http://www.eclipse.org/. Its great for project development. You need J2RE to run it though. And don't be discouraged when you first open, and only see Java development. You need to go to http://www.phpeclipse.de/ and download their plugin to do PHP/HTML development. There is also a plugin to do Perl. Then there is a plugin that allows you to upload via FTP by just right-clicking, and it figures out what has changed, etc.
