Version : 1.1.1

Description : Modern WYSIWYG HTML editor based on Gecko

>From the website:

BlueGriffon is a new WYSIWYG content editor for the World Wide
Web. Powered by Gecko, the rendering engine of Firefox 4, it's a
modern and robust solution to edit Web pages in conformance to the
latest Web Standards.

BlueGriffon is an intuitive application that provides Web authors
(beginners or more advanced) with a simple User Interface allowing to
create attractive Web sites without requiring extensive technical
knowledge about Web Standards.

Because Gecko lives inside BlueGriffon, the document you edit will
look exactly the same in Firefox 4. Advanced users can always use the
Source View to hard-code their page.

BlueGriffon is available in English, Dutch, French, Czech, German,
Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Spanish and
Traditional Chinese

There's also a "needs-packaging" bug report for Ubuntu:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/815498

The team of GetDeb.net already built packages of BlueGriffon 1.1.1:

AFAIK, it's quite tied to the underlying engine, but I haven't heard
Daniel's plans wrt the rapid release of Firefox. I'm not sure, for
example, that the current BG works with the 5.0 engine instead of 4.0.
