    Kate is a good text editor.

    Otherwise, all I can suggest is NVU ( http://nvu.com/index.html ).

    I sort of resent being quoted out of context in this particular case. I was going to suggest Kate as well but, because I do use windows, I was waiting for others with more linux experience to chime in. Surly there must be a beginner WYSIWYG type html editor for linux though. A quick Google found:

    http://nvu.com/

    Any of you 'nix folks know about this one?

    Eventually, ihungry will want to use an editor like vim or Kate but, to get started a WYSIWYG editor can help with the basics. If Firefox's HTML editor works on linux then it may be a good choice but, my experience with Mozilla web editors is that they are poorly documented and hard to configure especially if you are just starting out. What ihungry needs is an out of the box type thing, I would think.

    It's quite a competent little program. Doesn't come with many (or any?) templates though.

    This might be an odd question for you, but can I ask what your goals are? Do you want invest effort into learning, or just get results? They are two different roads, really.

    For just results, finding a WYSIWYG program is probably going to be your first task. The code that such software produces is generally rubbish, but you'll be able to produce the design you want without too much hassle.

    Ughh!

    A good introduction is certainly necessary, but I've never been sure what to make of W3 Schools (not to be confused with the W3C!)

    Eventually, anyone serious about Web development must read the HTML and CSS specifications.

    All good advice so far.

    To cr3:

    Ooops, missed that you recommended NVU.

    And to all:

    How about this one:

    http://www.w3.org/Amaya/Overview.html

    Sounds like it might even make Mike happy.

    Sorry. But the point still stands
    I have used Amaya, and it's not at all good for actually viewing pages in. Last time I looked, it didn't have frame support.
    Personally, I wouldn't recommend starting with a WYSIWYG designer. A nice web IDE is http://quanta.kdewebdev.org/. I never knew that WYSIWYG web design programs existed until I'd already learnt basic HTML. Once you understand the code, you can begin taking shortcuts. Before that, not a good idea.

    He already said he was running on Linux. IE, luckily, doesn't figure in the equation
