You can look at Quanta that comes with KDE. It is a comprehensive Web Development Environment. Comes with lots of help on it and also the scripting tool is excellent. On my linux distro (Fedora Core 2) this is installed from the CD of the Distro itself.

Is there a website for VI?

You can find everything about VI at www.vim.org.  It supports the syntax highlighting, but please note it will not automatically add your HTML syntax.  Something that may be of more intrest to you than command line edit mode vi gives you is Bluefish. It has all of the features and functionality you are looking for. You can find infomration for Bluefish at http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/. Bluefish is very nice and works well. I hope this information is helpful.

Cheers,
John

I just read your post a little closer, since you are using Knoppix, it looks like vi is going to be your only choice. If you were a full time Linux user, Bluefish would probably be better. Please note that vi (very nice syntax highlighting) is also available for Windows which does an awesome job for writing PHP. Hope this helps.
