I was trying to build a basic website for my personal use. For a while I used windows notepad for creating webpages. But u must have a very good html knowledge for that. While searching an open source solution for it I come to know NVUweb authering system.
Nvu (pronounced “N-view,” for a “new view”) is a free, open source software program that allows you to build websites and web pages using a simple WYSIWYG editor (what-you-see-is-what-you-get). Nvu makes creating web pages as easy as using a word processor and rivals such programs as Adobe’s Dreamweaver and Microsoft’s Expression Web, only for free! With Nvu’s built-in site manager, connecting to your website and making changes is a snap.
