More on Linux HTML editors

May 27, 2008

I’ve been playing with Bluefish for a while, just long enough to be irritated by a couple of its shortcomings.  It persists in using deprecated tags like i and b instead of em and strong.  It’s a bit difficult to customize, and the manual is HTML only.  If the program is going to be non-intuitive, I want a manual I can print and study.

Today I started playing with Quanta Plus.  Right off the bat it’s easier to customize and the workflow is a bit smoother.  It uses WW3C standard tags.  Very promising.  Except Bluefish had a friendlier icon to click on; it reminded me of one of the characters in Finding Nemo.  Otherwise, so far I like Q+ better.

    Well the Nemo reference was really the most important part at this stage anyway, because I liked that character.  I don’t know which HTML editor I’m going to settle on in the long run, I’m just trying them out.

    Umm… how about the sparklier one?  LOL.

    Well yeah, that’s pretty much my criteria.  Like Homer Simpson I like colored sprinkles on my donuts.
