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.
Guys, thanks for your help. I already managed to put in by
vi (and ".") the 45 or so <div align="left"> and </div>.
Still wonder what's wrong with bluefish, but glad there are
There are a bunch of font things to add to my prototype HTML/PHP
file, so lots to play with.
