OpenOffice produces some fairly clean code.

when you have a document from textprocessing, exporting it to html is probably the best way (is pdf is not a solution), but nothing more.

Openoffice insists to keep the paper layout on the website (settint CSS on any font) ans can only manage one table, so drop any nested table that exists (unless this changed recently)

I used Quanta on the beginning, mainly for it's very good help system, but sometime after it become not so well maintained and I had problems. May be this is old story, but I didn't use it anymore. (at that time the wisiwyg didn't anything good)

I stay on "vi", the only one that never made me problems...

when I have to build a complex table or structure, I sometimes open a mozilla composer, create the table there and copy/paste the source result

vi lacks only a good utility to code accents (I'm french) in the file, but _not_ on the screen. In fact you can make it code the accents when writinbg the file but not the other way round, so proofreading in vi is awfull.

however, having a konq window for html reading and editing in vi is acceptable

by the way I hate dreamweather (it destroyed one of my web site one day...)
