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.  


	ps: to bore you with yet-another-FWIW: this is v2 of my jottings
	    stuff :-)
