Hello,
I am looking for a web editing program like Dreamweaver, for now I am using geany, which is pretty good because of its autocomplete, but it's missing what I mostly need; a dropdown menu with possible css/html elements. This is a super useful feature for me because I have a pretty bad memory.
Thanks,
-Falven

Have you looked at bluefish? It's very customizable and I believe it does what you are asking for. There's a review here (http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/html-editors.html) that's quite favourable.

Edit: I just downloaded it and am impressed, though it doesn't take much in this instance. The last WYSIWIG editor I looked at was Coffee Cup in the nineties. I found it wanting and stuck with wordpad. I may play a bit with this. CSS is there all right.

No, I will check it out, thanks for the input :)
Edit: Have been playing around with bluefish and it is very nice; exactly what i needed,
Cheers!

Then there's Kompozer, a descendant of Nvu and the editor of the Mozilla suite:

Big tip : Use an ide. Eclipse (http://www.eclipse.org/) is considered one of the best, if not the best for Fedora.

Thanks,

IDE - (in this case) means "Integrated Development Environment"

ok, and is it needed to install software?
I just want to understand the right procedure to install any software, and to find the related files in the file system...
What is the right way?

All that is needed to install software that is in the standard repositories is yum/rpm-
and that is installed by default.

No. An ide is the most productive way to manage a web project or any programming project for that matter, including editing it.

I'd recommend an ide to anyone but most simple tasks only require a good text editor (Depending on your skill set) Which will highlight code for you. kwrite is one such editor.

You can read the Fedora documentation to find out how to install software :

Chapter 17. Managing software (http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/13/html/User_Guide/chap-User_Guide-Managing_software.html)

Gedit, the default editor in fedora does this already.

In the setup you can turn on bracket matching. It seems to do almost everything Dreamweaver does.

You can turn on line counting, side panes, it already picks up PHP, html.

I'm sure theres plugins for most languages.
