1st recommendation is to do everything in text mode and save the
commands as scripts to re-run directly if you need to repeat the steps
instead of figuring out what you tried to document the previous time.

2nd recommendation is that if you want online html documentation, use
a wiki with its own editor and simple markup instead of transferring
files around.  I like twiki, but mediawiki is probably more popular
and there are many other choices.   That way you only need a browser
and it won't matter what OS you have locally.

Finally, if you do need to use an editor to save files as html,
libreoffice writer should work, but be sure you work with the view in
'web layout' and do the formatting with styles from the F11 menu with
'html' selected at the bottom.
