NVU is an open source application. It is free. I have used Front Page but I like NVU
better. You can upload your files the same way you do with Front Page. It doesn't
allow frames (who really wants those anyway? ) but you can use the tables tool to
accomplish the same look. It is easy to use. You can use some scripts but I think you
have to view the results in a browser to make sure they work. I think it's a little
trickier to have sound files and files to download. I have tried that yet.
The developer stopped working on the application because so few people donated to
the project which was too bad because it's a nice no frills application that works well.
However the developer was kind enough to leave it up for others to use and
download for free.
The best way to find out about it is to use it.
I use it for our school website. Click on the link to see.
