    Cool Looking for an easy & cheap WYSIWYG editor for my grandmother

    Well, the title pretty much says it all.

    I created a site for my grandmother that she is going to have to maintain. Dreamweaver MX would be perfect for her if it wasn't $400. I don't think it's worth it for just her one site and I don't want to make her pay so much.

    What I'm looking for is something similar to Word (which makes me think of FrontPage, but that is $170) because that is the program she knows well.

    It would be the perfect solution if it had FTP built in, but that's not absolutely necessary.

    So.... does such a great product even exist??

    Netscape Composer is free and it's ok if a little limited. Absolutely fine for reasonably simple stuff though. All your tables, properties, links, fonts, etc, etc ...

    See http://aitt.acadiau.ca/tutorials/NetscapeComposer/ for tutorials to give you an idea of what it's (well, was really) like. If you can't find it download I could possibly host it for you somewhere as a temporary thing.

    Frontpage Express

    If you're using Windows 98 you can install frontpage express from the Windows CDROM. It also comes free with IE4+ I think. Not sure about IE5+, could be just IE4. and i don't think it works under NT/2000/XP

    What about Evrsoft 1st page 2000 or arachnophilia? Both are really nice WYSIWYG editors that you can find easily on download.com or tucows

    Neither of them are truly WYSIWYG though. Unless you count the "Preview" feature. Still need to get in and hack code.
