    I've got Adobe Glove 4.0, which is now slightly out of date and a bit clunky and way over the top for my needs. It doesn't do embedding very well, well it might but I can't figure it, which is another problem I have with it for casual use.

    So looking for one that's free, easy to use, let's me embed pictures and vids, doesn't require me to learn HTML or CSS and includes some site management tools.

    Any suggestions?

    Nah! Not free, not available anymore as it's morphed into two seperate products and not part of the Office suite I have. Shame, it might have done.

    Microsoft FrontPage wasn't free and in any case has been discontinued and replaced by Sharepoint Designer and Expression Web, both of which are paid-for products, although the Expression beta may still be available for download.

    For free web page editors see here. Of these, Trellian and KompoZer are probably worth checking out.

  5. When I'm after a piece of free software, I usually look on Download.com

    There is no such thing as a good WYSIWYG HTML editor, let alone a free one. They all output code of questionable quality.

    as someone who uses a content management system, i can assure you that, as usual, carwash speaks the truth.

    Well, so far, through a combination of Trellian, GoLive and a Web page book and by looking at the source code generated, I've managed to work backwards in GoLive and do what I wanted to do with images. Need to look at embedding vids next, don't know if I can do that with Google vids though?

    Frontpage is total pants, never touch it. The good HTML editor Microsoft ever invented was notepad. Try Nvu (pronounced N-view) if you really must use a WYSIWYG HTML editors. I learnt HTML using MicroEMACS under Unix back in the early 90's.

    Just make sure it's open source. Go for something like Armadillo Hurd Throttler 7.5.1 (3.3.3) (.1) with service pack 1.

    Thanks HJ, that one looks interesting, nice clean interface. I shall give it a try tomorrow. I am looking at the code now, some of it makes sense but I'm a long way from just using Notepad.

    That a Beta version Abitrary.
