    Experience with NVU?

    Does anyone have any direct experience with NVU, perhaps in comparison with the remarkably expensive DreamWeaver? I know it has been mentioned a couple of times in the Lounge, even though its parentage is Linuxial.

    Thanks

    Re: Experience with NVU?

    Hi John

    I was talking to a colleague at College yesterday and we were discussing various open source applications. NVU was mentioned by this colleague and he highly rates it as a good contender to Dreamweaver. When this particular person rates an application, I have learnt to trust him thoroughly as he is a fine critic and knows his onions.

    I would go for it <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    I have used Nvu yes, and i can recommend it as a good free program, though i don't really see it as good as dreamweaver, the main difference is that dreamweaver is just a lot 'prettier' in the way it does things i suppose. If you can write HTML source then i recommend getting PSPAD, it is an excellent text editor with highlighting and supports CSS, JS, and HTML as well as other formats. My Favourite Nvu thing (Though simple) Is the fact that you can paste information from a word processor, and it will keep the formatting, and it produces less errors in the code than dreamweaver does.
