Hi,

Ignoring Mozilla's older NVU, and recent attempts (Bespin, Ace, SkyWriter), there is now: 1) KomPozer, as others have mentioned, and 2) SeaMonkey Composer, which is probably too lightweight of an editor for you. Two Mozilla-based commercial tools that might be worth considering are BlueGriffon and ActiveState's Komodo IDE.

http://www.bluegriffon.org/
http://www.openkomodo.com/

As for non-Mozilla-based open source tools...

Another person mentioned Oracle NetBeans IDE. If you're considering "IDEs", then also check out IBM Eclipse IDE. It has a web editor, has many plugins, is free, and multi-platform. Both are good platforms with similar features.

W3C's Amaya editor-browser might be of use. W3C uses Amaya to test their specs on, so it's good for standards-based editing (but not for Flash/Silverlight/etc). Perhaps too lightweight for full-time editor, but nice to render and perhaps tweak some content written in Vim (or Emacs).

There is also BlueFish. It has been around for a while for Unix, but recently added a Windows port.
