Has anyone else tried nvu a wysiwyg html editor. I have given it a

Adobe PageMill. It is not as powerful as the newer programs like
Golive. It is open source and runs on Linux, Mac and Windows. ,
which worked fine.
Nvu is an offshoot of the Composer component of Mozilla. It's not too
bad -- it uses the Gecko rendering engine like the rest of the
Mozilla products, but we found that it did odd things with certain
aspects of editing. More a bug than a design flaw, but I suppose
that's something that you might need to be aware of -- it's not as
mature as the more powerful programs you have mentioned.
That said, as a replacement for Composer, it's fantastic. That, and
it runs everywhere -- Windows, Mac and other UNIXes.
