All the editors I've found in Ubuntu are good.
My preference is Quanta Plus.

If you want simplicity, Nvu has much to commend it.  It is great 
for getting quotes and other symbols "right", and it's psuedo 
WYSIWG feature is easy to use and desn't produce "code bloat"

Screem is really good for search/replace (where you have "funny 
rubbish" on a page when you shoud have a quote or & etc).

Personally, I'd put Bluefish at the bottom of my list, but YMMV.
It's good, but not to my taste.
