iWeb for the PC - or something like it

Hi all,

I am looking for a WYSIWYG web creation tool to teach a basic 'Intro to the web' course. I am looking for a tool that is similar to iWeb or RapidWeaver and template based. I would like to exclude any software that is overburdened by buttons, boxes, etc. I wish to focus in usability not features.

Do you guys have any ideas? Thanks.

You could get the free Visual Web Developer Express 2008. I use the full version at work all day long and it's fantastic!

Use it in conjunction with your IIS on your local machine and you've got a powerful local work environment. No more loading and reuploading of files to see results of your code.

Thanks, I am looking for an application that is WYSIWYG based. I will be using it to teach a 'build-your-web-site 101' course and does not dive into code quite yet. At that point I do not want to expose the student to more than the idea if visual development and planning.

Visual Studio Express is great for WYSIWYG editing too.
