amaya web editor

I've been searching for a long time for a good open source and / or
free HTML editor that also has features to incorporate style and SVG
(scalable vector graphics)

I think Amaya might do the job.

The current releases, Amaya 8.7.2 (old User Interface) and Amaya 9.1 (new User Interface), supports HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.0, XHTML Basic, XHTML 1.1, HTTP 1.1, MathML 2.0, many CSS 2 features, and includes SVG support (transformation, transparency, and SMIL animation on OpenGL platforms). You can display and partially edit XML documents. It's an internationalized application.

So far I've only checked out 8.7 but I like it a lot (first impressions)

it's produced by W3C, world wide web consortium, the standards body led by Tim Berners-Lee - the trouble with a lot of the other web editors I looked at is that they haven't bothered to keep up to date with W3C standards (which has implications down the track even though the web pages initially still "work")

W3C keeps a fairly low profile, which is my current hypothesis of why this editor hasn't been talked about on teachers lists, to my knowledge, up until now.

Darren Payne of Hurlstone Agricultural High School in NSW has suggested nvu (pronounced new 'view' as an alternative:

http://nvu.com/

I've had a quick look - HTML is valid, you can edit HTML directly if
you want and it does have a CSS editor - interface is inituitive and smooth

I need to do some more comparisons between nvu and amaya (amaya has mathsML and SVG so its ahead in that respect)
