Author's description:

BlueGriffon is a new WYSIWYG content editor for the World Wide Web. Powered by Gecko, the rendering engine of Firefox 4, it's a modern and robust solution to edit Web pages in conformance to the latest Web Standards.
t's free to download (current stable version is 1.2.1) and is available on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

BlueGriffon is an intuitive application that provides Web authors (beginners or more advanced) with a simple User Interface allowing to create attractive Web sites without requiring extensive technical knowledge about Web Standards.

Because Gecko lives inside BlueGriffon, the document you edit will look exactly the same in Firefox 4. Advanced users can always use the Source View to hard-code their page.

MyOpiniton:
BlueGriffon is developed by Daniel Glazman, the author of Nvu. It supports HTML5, XHTML and HTML autoring. It's free, easy to use, and updated regulary.
I would suggest to replace the KompoZer with the BlueGriffon, since the first one has not been update more than year and a half, and last BlueGriffon update is from May 25.2012.

I'll take a look at it and

I'll take a look at it and see if it's possible. Also, quick fix: edit your links; seems like your a href's got out of line.

Edit: I took a look at the program site, and it looks like a nice app. One thing that stands out immediately is that it's asking to have Visual C++ libraries installed beforehand. I'm not quite sure what sort of challenge that would cause to whatever packager picks this up. If I end up trying, I'm not sure what computer I could test on that doesn't have VC++ already installed...

Calling other devs: Is there a nice way of incorporating VC++ libraries?

UPDATE: I was able to talk to AluisioASG on the IRC channel and he gave me a way to incorporate the libraries. I'll see what I can do to get the app working, and I'll leave a comment if I was able to get it working or not here, hopefully in the next couple of days.

Proud to present....

So, I managed to take some time and I think I have BlueGriffon portable and working properly. You can find the release page here. Please tell me if there's any problems and I'll try to fix them sooner than later. Enjoy!
