[kwlug-disc] What are people using to write HTML with?

I usually code HTML by hand in a text editor (pluma does HTML syntax
highlighting), and then run it through http://validator.w3.org to make
sure it's good.

In the past I've used SeaMonkey's composer to create pages WYSIWYG, but
that's a lot of baggage to carry for a few pages. I believe the
forked-off app is KompoZer http://www.kompozer.net/ (which doesn't seem
to be in the Ubuntu repositories, but I'm pretty sure it used to be).
