Kompozer was a fork from NVU, because the author stopped with NVU to 
write new code from scratch. This is done now: BlueGriffon 
(http://bluegriffon.org/). The aims and criteria are different from 
those of Amaya, but it may help compose in wysiwyg. (I write mostly 
XHTML code directly —when not writing TEI XML, also in code—, but I like 
wysiwyg to build a table for example.)
Mind the fact that it is meant to be user friendly: any blank in HTML 
code is one space in the rendering, but for people who like to actually 
put more space and knowing little about code, NVU, Kompozer and 
BlueGriffon use non breaking space for a second space. If you type two 
spaces by accident and then delete the ordinary space, you may end up 
with unwanted non breaking spaces.)
