Just like there's GIMP for Photoshop, is there a "replacement" out there Dreamweaver or, God forbid, Front Page? I didn't really have luck with my google: just kept coming back with promotions for the original retail products, or reviews of...

WOW!! Just about everything you could imagine. ^_^

Does anyone know of a Quark alternative? That was one I didn't see on the list - unless Quark changed names recently.

....Seriously why would you want to use a program to make a website? Use Gedit... Works more then well enough for any development purpose...

Perhaps DnDer is not well versed in HTML to create a page/site from scratch.
Gedit...Really? Kate/Kwrite are (IMHO) way more polished and functional.

IDK. I liked Kompozer because I could code in one window/tab and have the visual in another window/tab without having to save the page every time I needed to make sure I liked the color schemes and object placement and run a browser tab that was constantly reloading with edits. It was a luxury

raw - Kate/Kwrite, I will have to check that out, I haven't heard of it... How good is it?

BlackSpyder - Well I would understand the whole not having to save it thing, but still in my personal opinion, it is better and easier to just code from scratch...

I know how to code basic HTML. I enjoy doing it. My time is limited, and I've come to appreciate the ability to create long strings of HTML or javascript without having to write (and check) by hand. The program is to make how I spend my time more efficient.

Personally I use Kwrite. It has color coding for different languages.
Indentations, line numbers...
Kate is like Kwrite's big brother, way more functionality than i need.

DnDer - I can understand that, but even still... I personally do not like using a program to make a website... Not many programs out there can make one without screwing the code up somewhere...

raw - Gedit does the same thing... Color coding for many different languages, including markups, shells, gtk ect.... Automatic indentations, line numbers, and more... Before using Gedit, I used to use either notepad, or vi... and I enjoyed vi more so then notepad lol...

Gedit does the same thing...

Yes it does, but for GNOME. I just automatically went to KDE.
And before you reply...I know Gedit will run in KDE.

Notepad (Windows) or Notepad++ (Linux)?
For the rare times I have to use Windows I have become quite fond of Metapad.

I use VI (vim) for server duties, but not something I would suggest to newbies.

I used notepad on windows... When I started with linux, I just used vi for everything... Until I got on fedora, and found gedit... then I started using only that... and now I don't even do any coding, scripting or anything on windows
