I think it's actually the other way around. If Wikipedia is correct:

"Daniel Glazman (lead developer) announced in the course of
2006 that he has stopped official development on Nvu and he
would be developing a successor to it. In September 2008 he
announced BlueGriffon ([3]), written from scratch and based on
Mozilla Gecko 1.9.x and XULRunner.[2]

A community-driven WYSIWYG HTML editor fork, KompoZer, maintains
Nvu codebase and fixes bugs until a successor to Nvu is released."

So I assume from this that a new user is better off downloading Kompozer, as it's in effect "nVu plus recent bug fixes".
