All very confusing.  Nvu from http://www.net2.com/nvu/ looks to be exactly 
what I need, but it seems that nvu is concentrating on windows and kompozer is 
being recommended for linux.  Kompozer as I knew it must be an older version.  
Like seamonkey composer it does not handle form insertion, so it's no good for 
this purpose.  Turning to that website again, the version linked from there 
apparently is quite capable.  However, the rpm supplied is tested against FC7 
and Mandriva 2007.  I did try it, on the off-chance, and  it stayed up just 
long enough for me to see that the interface is the new one, but it crashes 
almost immediately.

They supply a src tarball, but 'built with gcc/g++ 4.0.3 on Linux 2.6.15'.  
Being totally inexpert, I edited the mozilla/.mozconfig but running 
./configure brings

checking for gcc... gcc-4.3
checking whether the C compiler (gcc-4.3  ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot 
create executables

Am I just inept, or am I trying to do something that's unlikely to work?
