For my Dad I need some FTP software and a WYSIWYG editor, preferably freeware. Is WS-FTP still freeware? Any suggestions?

If you find OOo a bit too bloated, Abiword is available for Windows.

Tnx chaps. Tried a few Win-OS programs, but I just can't work with those anymore... Settled for Composer (Seamonkey) as editor. WS-FTP is freeware, if you buy (!!) an unrelated product from them and you don't cancel your order! Guess what: F*CK OFF!! Got FileZilla for free instead...

Anyway, it'll be a while before his girlfriend can publish her own website with her artwork (paintings). Never mind, there's some free meals waiting for me then Mr. Green (She's an excellent cook btw! Wink)

Have a look at the software available on OpenDisc. You'll find FileZilla Wink and nvu which is basically what you're after. The full list of software is here.
