  Description     : Modern WYSIWYG HTML editor based on Gecko

From the website:

  BlueGriffon is a new WYSIWYG content editor for the World Wide
  Web. Powered by Gecko, the rendering engine of Firefox 4, it's a
  modern and robust solution to edit Web pages in conformance to the
  latest Web Standards.

  BlueGriffon is an intuitive application that provides Web authors
  (beginners or more advanced) with a simple User Interface allowing to
  create attractive Web sites without requiring extensive technical
  knowledge about Web Standards.

  Because Gecko lives inside BlueGriffon, the document you edit will
  look exactly the same in Firefox 4. Advanced users can always use the
  Source View to hard-code their page.

  BlueGriffon is available in English, Dutch, French, Czech, German,
  Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Spanish and
  Traditional Chinese

There's also a "needs-packaging" bug report for Ubuntu:

  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/815498

The team of GetDeb.net already built packages of BlueGriffon 1.1.1:

Your fear it won't be able to run it with xulrunner directly like e.g.
Conkeror does?

On a first glance it looked like a xulrunner application, but it seems
as if it has a xulrunner application embedded. At least upstream's
code repo includes an application.ini, but the upstream tar ball also
ships a libxul.so... Haven't looked closer yet, though.

The upstream author seems to be the author of the Netscape Composer,
too, so I don't wonder about his choice of platform at all. :-)

		Regards, Axel

AFAIK, it's quite tied to the underlying engine, but I haven't heard
Daniel's plans wrt the rapid release of Firefox. I'm not sure, for
example, that the current BG works with the 5.0 engine instead of 4.0.

This appears to be a very old bug -

I'm supposing because of the paid addons that this is not added?
