Publishing tool
Does anyone know a good one?

We are looking for a publishing tool which our staff around the world can use to generate content for our different sites, without having to know HTML. We are not happy with the proprietary system we use right now and need something that is easy to use and which will store content (text and images) in a db, from which pages can be dynamically generated when asked for. The tool should preferably also be able to create static HTML files for search engine spiders to index. Local support in many countries is an important factor for us.

Does anyone know of something like this?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, margareta.

Take a look at this [fourthworld.com]

Also, I'm doing much of what you're describing for my own projects by customizing packages from Gossamer-Threads (Links and DBman), but I'm don't know if you're seeking a turn-key solution or are going semi-custom. [gossamer-threads.com] (you'll have to explore the add-on modules listed on the site to get an idea of the overall capabilities of these packages)

You may wish to look into this.

Last I heard TIME and Fortune Magazine were using Quark.

While just now surfing for web demographics, I stumbled across this product, which looks interesting:

Thank you for mentioning WebMerge.

We're interested in expanding WebMerge beyond database publishing and into areas of less structured publishing like the sorts of content updates you were looking to facilitate.

The biggest challenge is not technical, but one of needs assessment: How much flexibility do you need in such a tool? Would you expect clients to be able to change the layout, or just add/replace content in a layout you design? Will they also be adding graphics? Other media?

Your input would be very helpful as we move forward with the design phase of this new tool. Thanks in advance for any comments you can share -
