I am looking for a tool that would enable a non-techie to easily update the site - simple stuff like texts and pictures.

I am aware of Contribute.

Do you guys know of anything else? Price?

    Nothing is easer than Netscape Composer.
    It is part of Netscape 4.8 browser.

    As Composer has few features, then there are not so much variants to look for.

    Then you type in and the text appears already formatted.
    You press the Image button, and inserts an image.
    Even a table is ease to assembly, just inform how many rows and collumns and put text or image inside desired cells.

    Should use the 4.8 version, downloaded for free from

    Don't use the browser as it is not prepared for security, plugins, styles, so on.

    There were valid suggestions made by JoseParrot, John-Bayles and myself, however it seems that ssdanish did not wish to accept the suggestion of Macromedia Dreamweaver (as suggested by myself and as an alternative suggestion by John-Bayles).
