I am an amateur looking to modify a website I created a while ago and was looking for a free web design package I can play around with to do this. I have the site held on my pc only at the moment and was looking for something basic and functional but not on a trial period so I can take my time. I already have some server space so I don’t want anything that will tie me in to a charge in the future. Appreciate any advice and suggestions of a free download I might use.

If you want simple free and reliable.  Just download the complete Mozilla suite, and give Composer a try.


Then you can look at the projects page and pick up free extensions and tools for completed and inprogress projects, and get an idea of the new stuff that is in the works.
