I just came across your old post.
I am using NetObjects Fusion Essentials for my websites. click here
Yes, it is very easy to use if you have used a DTP (page layout) program before. I use tables to keep my pages organised, but you can also place text frames and other objects freely on the page.
No need to upgrade at all. What I like about it is the speed. I can save my 270 page (30 Mbyte) website in 1 second. Easy to move individual pages or entire branches around in Structure View. Navigation bars update automatically.
Change the look and feel of the entire site by changing site styles. Edit paragraph styles to change fonts etc.
