NVu, an HTML editor now in beta release, has the potential to be the next great WYSIWYG HTML editor.

have a dirty little secret. When I started to build my first Web site a few years back, I used Microsoft's FrontPage. The main reason I chose to use FrontPage was its WYSIWYG facility. It made creating tables, changing the look of the text, renaming HTML pages and many other tasks a snap. For the professionals among you, this may be heresy, but after cleaning up the generated code, I had a useful site. For a number of years, I have been looking for equivalent Linux products. The wait may be almost over.

Although nothing yet approaches FrontPage's ease-of-use, we now have a number of products that are truly WYSIWYG editors. They may grow into something much more.



NVU:

From the set of Linux HTML editors now available, the most advanced seems to be NVu (New View). NVu offers users the ability to:

  • Import complete sites.

  • Publish the current set of Web pages to the Web.

  • Export pages as ASCII text.

  • Spell check pages.

  • View pages in normal, tagged HTML, full HTML and preview modes.

  • Set a wide variety of encodings, including None, Unicode (UTF-8) and Western (ISO-8859-1).

  • Create tables easily.

  • Create forms easily.

  • Insert special symbols visually, quickly.

  • Insert a table of contents based on text styles.

  • Insert custom PHP code or comments.

  • Write in a left-to-right or right-to-left direction, for those using Hebrew or Arabic.
