nvu-logoNvu is a complete Web Authoring System that combines web file management and easy-to-use WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) web page editing. Nvu is designed to be extremely easy to use, making it ideal for non-technical computer users who want to create an attractive, professional-looking web site without needing to know HTML or web coding.

Nvu allows you to create web pages as easily as you would type a word processing document, and then publish them to your web site just by saving the document. You can quickly toggle between the WYSIWYG editing mode and the HTML code mode, just by changing tabs.

Create a document in normal (WYSIWYG editing mode):

Then select Source tab and here you will get your document in HTML format:

Nvu is also ideal for those wishing to learn HTML programming, as they can easily observe the interaction between the HTML code and what a user will see in their web browser.

Working on Plone you can use Kupu WYSIWYG editor, but on some sites it's just not possible. Then the need for HTML code appears, that is definitely more time assuming than than working with WYSIWYG editor. Here NVU will be the best solution for a Content Manager. That's because there is no need to create a content using HTML (that is definitely more time assuming than creating it on WYSIWYG editing mode), you will get the HTML version of the written material just by toggling between tabs. Then you just copy HTML code into your Plone page. And here it is - your content works perfectly on your Plone site!
