WYSIWYG programs add a bunch of unnecessary verbage ...
I've simplified HTML-coding by having the basics in a saved
to which I merely need add whatever whenever; I've yet to
site which can't view these.
Well, that's my 2cents' worth ;-)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Using LO Writer to edit HTML
Yes, a text editor helps for some editing of an HTML file. Yet, for some
work I need a WYSIWYG editor for the look and feel of the web document.
I use Kate [Ubuntu based Linux Mint] for the text editor. I use it for
Find/Replace option to change 91 links from [say] "188.8.131.52_" to
"184.108.40.206_". 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

Thanks for the reply.
The document already exists - so I'm selecting 'File Open', I change the
File Type to 'HTML Document (Writer)' and select my file. It then opens
"view" mode - So how do I get to the code to edit it??
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
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,
instead of changing the file type to "HTML Document (Writer)" I kept it
"All types." Then when I opened an HTML file, I saw the source code
of the WYSIWYG display.
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
edit HTML code. Gedit works nicely on my Ubuntu machine.)

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
