    I use Macromedia Homesite on my Windows PC for writing my websites. I like it because it color codes the tags. It the a similarly featured program available for linux or would I be stuck using a notepad type program?

    The other threads on the forum have led to to main options: geany or bluefish. Both are installable from the add/remove programs application.

    Bluefish (GTK+), Quanta+ (KDE), NVU are some of the offerings.

    Quanta is the best I have seen any where.

    If you just want an editor with colorcoding, the old and very expandable nedit is always an option .

    Or you could go hardcore - emacs ! vim ! Emacs even comes with built-in shrink in case you get frustrated... and even installed some nice dependencies that solved problems with other old apps ;)


    Though the applications posted by other users are probably more suited to your needs ;)

    Please don't scare the newbies with my favourite kitchen sink- Emacs. ;)

    Code:
    M-x doctor
    is in ;-)

    As an aside, I got my Aspire One so that I can have something small to run org-mode:

    http://orgmode.org/

    in Emacs.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll give them a shot and see which I like best.

    I downloaded Quanta Plus, and it is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.
