I used bluefish a few years ago, then went to quanta and finally settled 
on (/usr/ports/www/kompozer) Kompozer.  Kompozer is an udate to nvu 
(which was the composer module in Mozilla) as a standalone application.  
It still produces source code with some Netscapeisms, but it isn't 
anything that isn't easily cleaned up (when necessary --like to produce 
html e-mail) in an editor like kate, or kedit.
