A short, very positive and well concluded review of Nvu 1.0 at TechBookReport:

" In all Nvu represents a serious and user-friendly web authoring environment that most users will find more than adequate to suit their needs. The user interface is intuitive and well-designed, the core functionality is all there. Of course it lacks the advanced features of many heavy-weight commercial tools, but most users don't need these anyway. This is, to conclude, another one of those programs that shows best side of open source development. "
