Editing HTML (and indeed any type of XML document) is supported
through bluefish, a purpose built editor based on the
Gnome edit toolkit. Bluefish is described as a programmer's HTML
editor because it is not a graphical editor (in that you work directly
with the mark-up, i.e., the actual HTML tags, rather than with how the
final page might look, as with Netscape Compser). Features include a
multiple file editor, multiple toolbars, custom menus, image and
thumbnail dialogs, open from the Web, CSS dialogs, PHP, SSI and RXML
support, HTML validation, and many wizards.
Figure 45.1 shows the basic interface editing a
simple HTML document. Syntax highlighting has been turned on under
the View-->Highlight syntax menu. You may also need to
initialise a set of highlighting patterns with
Options-->Lists-->Reset syntax highlighting. You
can refresh the highlighting with
View-->Refresh highlighting or else F5.

When you are ready to see what your marked up document will look like
in a browser simply select ViewPreview or use the
F4 keyboard shortcut.
