Nvu - Free Html Editor
AvaHost is proud to introduce a complete Web Authoring System for Microsoft Windows users as well as Linux desktop and Macintosh users to rival programs like FrontPage and Dreamweaver. Nvu (which stands for "new view") makes managing a web site a snap.

Now anyone can create web pages and manage a website with no technical expertise or knowledge of HTML.

Nvu User Guide:

Publishing your site to AvaHost server.

To publish the page, go to "File | Publish" (ie, the "Publish" item on the "File" menu). A "Publish Page" dialog box will appear asking you for more details.
  • "Site Name" is the name that you want to give your website. This name is only used by NVU internally, to refer to your site.
  • The "HTTP address of your homepage" field specifies the actual web address (or URL) of your website. If you registered a domain name like "domainname.com" for your site, enter "http://www.domainname.com/" into this box. Be sure to enter the "http://" prefix as well.
  • To the "Publishing server" field you should enter your hostname with directory name. This info you can find in your "setup-email" (section 3.1).

    If your domain has already been transferred to our server, you can use your domain name as a hostname. If not, you can use your IP number. Remember to add the prefix "ftp://" before the hostname and add "public_html" directory after the hostname.

    For example:
    If your domain name is "domainname.com" and your IP is "111.222.333.444"
    then you can enter such info:
  • The "User name" and "Password" fields in the dialog box refer to the user name (or login name) and password that we assigned to you. (sections 3.2, 3.2 of setup-email)
When you've finished completing the information, click the "Publish" button. Nvu will proceed to connect to your FTP account on AvaHost and upload your pages. There will be a dialog box that pops up to tell you it is uploading your page.

Nvu is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) web editor based on the built-in Mozilla Composer web editor that comes with the Mozilla Suite.

You can find new versions of this software for Windows, Linux, Mac OS, and Linspire on their site.
