Certainly it is.
You turn to a WYSIWYG program because you don't want a WYCodeIWYG
program. It's part of the deal! You accept the code that the program
devises for you.
I can't speak for Dreamweaver (Too expensive!) or FrontPage (You are
joking, aren't you?) but, used properly, KompoZer will provide neat,
clean, code that validates with no problem. What more could you want
from a WYSIWYG program?
To achieve this you do need to use a couple of add-ons, such as the
"Handcoder" extension, that enables integration of "HTMLTidy".
True, once in a blue moon it will crash. However, you should make
allowances. Unlike Eric, the lone developer of KompoZer is a volunteer
part-time coder working with other people's base code, much of it
As v0.8 is built on a later version of the base code, when it comes
out of beta, you should expect massive improvements in reliability.
For its intended market, new web designers wanting a WYSIWYG tool, I
know of no better program.
There's great support too at:
