Have you "Googled" < Web Editor > ? There's a million of them.

Find more information on the new Microsoft Web authoring tools.
Office SharePoint Designer 2007 for the enterprise information workers, and Expression Web for the professional Web designer.

* Expression Web

I've operated the Canadian Coast Guard web site and Intranet(s) for over 15 yrs using FrontPage and a few other tools. MS Expression web editor is the next evolution in the FP product line. It contains a number of new features for the creation and management of XML based documentation but will still do all the HTML most users require. Expression has better visual design features that allow you to modify, on the Fly, style sheets and document templates especially those with multiple layers. It's more akin to a desktop publishing tool. If you could do it in FP you can do it in Expression. They're very similar.

Sharepoint designer is better off avoided. It is designed to work with Sharepoint Portal Servers to create and manage content for those servers. Sharepoint Portal Servers are more suited to company or corporate Intranets or Web portals. I've wasted weeks of work with that flakey product.

I've used (and do use) Dreamweaver and a host of other tools. If you want to do it on the cheap do a google search for "Free HTML Editor". There's a few good ones out there but I haven't had the opportunity to test any lately. My favorite was a product called "Hot Dog" but I don't think it's available anymore.

I've done a web site with GoLive for 10 years and it has updated as Dreamweaver, although I haven't made that move yet. Easy to use and the results are good.

My favorite web editor is Notepad ++. But it is not any kind of a wysiwyg editor.
