Possibility #1: Have you considered a Wiki? Whether it is an appropriate
solution or not depends on your site. You can easily copy and paste HTML
code to and from the Wiki's textarea.
Possibility #2: I you collaborate on files, how about removing them from the
server (literally checking them out) rather than copying them? When done,
put the file/s back in place.
Possibility #3: Set up a CVS repository where you work on your site/s. A
cron job will copy files from the repository to the Web server/public_html
area. We have that set up in the Division. Not only can you lock files, but
merging is possible too.

I don't know Bluefish, but Quanta Plus is a great tool, especially if you
get yourself accustomed to it.

If you are not satisfied with the replies here, you can always take your
business to the Linux groups. *smile* alt.os.linux.suse is occupied by some
very experienced members 'pool'.
