    Hi, I am trying to see some options on setting up a simple website for our church. Currently our web master is using script editor?? or notepad to do what he needs to do. A friend suggested that we use Microsoft publisher for the web pages as the webmaster is very busy and we are finding it hard to update the site.

    My question is, is this a good application to use? ( I need something that a lot of people can work with) Also, since I am a Mac user, will I be able to use iwork '08 with this because I know we can export to HTML with iwork 08.

    I read somewhere that iwork did not do good at the html thing so they took it off with iwork 09. I need some light shed on this.

    Thank you in advance.

    Gina

    I use dreamweaver. Its easy to use because there is a design view and code view.
    U can also use MS Front Page.

    In case you want to try something even simpler than Dreamweaver, I recommend Sandvox. Works great especially if you're not really after a very fancy / highly customized site. Using it is pretty much like using a program like Pages or Word.

    If you're just going to update a few sections, how about using a blogging tool, instead? You can use Blogger or Wordpress. They're free and you get an instant CMS.
