You mean the html editor ? ( I never tried/ tested running it under wine..but if it will run ? )
if so..
left click and hold on the programs entry in the list of program..drag to empty area of desktop ..let go ..shortcut made ..same thing if you want it in the "taskbar" Lclick+hold+drag+drop.

And Welcome to WebmasterWorld Wortham :-)

I used to use html-kit on Windows. When I started using Ubuntu I tried a variety of code editors before following a suggestion in this forum and switching to Kate. This works well with one caveat:

My code is ASP and hosted locally on a Windows server. In order to access the sites' code on this server I have to use SMB4K to register the shares. Minor problem and once done it works fine. (I also have to use SMB4K to register shares for the backup tool I use so Kate is not the only tool that has issues with shares.)

There are some other options:

Quanta (I used to use this, like all KDE apps has excellent support for editing files on remote servers, same editor component as Kate)
Bluefish (never used it myself)
Komodo Edit (what I use at the moment, OK support for editing files on remote servers, excellent syntax checking and auto-complete, very extensible)

Then there are all the text editors available for Linux. There are a LOT and someone will swear by each one.

I tried quanta and bluefish when I first started looking at ubuntu as a serious work platform. I forget which way around it was but one crashed regularly and the other was far too slow when editing large files. Kate turned out to be the answer for me.

I haven't tried komodo - can't recall seeing it in my startup days. :)

I am not saying that there is anything wrong with Kate. I have recommended it here.

I do think that the best choice depends on what you are doing and on personal taste, so its worth Wortham being aware of a few more options.

Forgot to mention: I was testing apps using Gutsy and Hardy and used Kate extensively on Hardy. Now on Lucid, installed straight from Hardy.
