You're absolutely right, Stuart. And if I had read all the way down to
the bottom of their About page...

"Linspire abandoned the Nvu project when it was sold to Xandros in 2008.
Fortunately, Fabien Cazenave picked up the project and started updating
Nvu under the name Kompozer. Both Nvu and Kompozer versions can be
found on our Download page."

As much as I hate being corrected, I hate being wrong even more. Thanks.

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".

Cheers,
Stuart
