I use to "hand code" everything and then check my work in a browser.
Now with more complex pages, it can be very hard to keep one edited
without using a WYSIWYG editor. Yes, I use text editors for some
things, but there are a lot of things that need the editing while
viewing the page, and not just the code.

I use Kate [Ubuntu based Linux Mint] for the text editor. I use it
for the Find/Replace option to change 91 links from [say] "18.104.22.168_"
to "22.214.171.124_". That takes too much time in a WYSIWYG editor, or at
least the ones I have used.
Currently I use Kompozer, but when I upgrade from Mint 16 to 17
[14.04 based] and beyond, the graphical display methods do not like
the upgraded version that Ubuntu 14.04/14.10 now uses. So I will be
looking for a different DEDICATED web page editor.
Yes, Writer can do the HTML editing, but I would prefer a WYSIWYG
editor that was created specifically for web page editing and
hopefully with error checking options.
I haven't followed the thread with great care so I may have overlooked
a reference to 'bluefish'. <http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/features.html>
I haven't used it in quite a spell so this isn't a 'recommendation',
just a reference to a tool which might be of use.
it is not, I think, wysiwyg as such but it will open your browser for
inspection of results. (looking at the website it seems it may open
your page within bluefish but I'm skimming too fast to be sure.)
see what you think.
(apologies if this has already been considered.)

I just tried it again, and I think I see your problem. I did exactly
as you did, and the "HTML source" option did not appear on the View
menu. I think the problem is that, when opening the file, you are
changing the File Type to "HTML Document (Writer)." When you do
that, all you get is a WYSIWYG display along with no HTML source
option. So, I tried it again, but instead of changing the file type
to "HTML Document (Writer)" I kept it at "All types." Then when I
opened an HTML file, I saw the source code instead of the WYSIWYG
Not sure if this is intended behavior or a bug.
(All this said, I agree with Tom that I would use a regular text
editor to edit HTML code. Gedit works nicely on my Ubuntu machine.)

Can I get some help on this please??
I have read about, and looked-up, the possibility of editing HTML
documents in Writer but can not get it to work!!
No matter what I do I can not fine 'HTML Mode' or 'View HTML' as
