There aren't any WYSIWYG editors on the planet, although there are quite a few WYSI#*$! editors
Notepad, SCitE, Crimson Editor etc are the way to go
Dreamweaver in this case for sure.
Expression Web and it even has a 60 free trial.

So true,:)I never get what I want that's for sure.
But I want something easy for this person so I won't get stuck doing it for her.
I will let her know about the suggestions made here and will watch this thread in case anyone else adds a suggestion.
Expression Web or Dreamweaver are both good, but if your friend is familiar with other Microsoft products the EW interface will be easier for her the first time around.
But do not, repeat, do not, let her run with it straight out of the box. Take the time to at least set up a proper DocType and tweak the preferences and options. Do this and you should never see a stray piece of code.
And you never know, once you get your hands on EW's code editor you might find it's a pretty nifty piece of gear in and of itself.
Check Macromedia Dreamweaver. It's a great editor
if you want something very easy to use try netobjects fusion
if you want something harder to use that makes more professional looking sites try dreamweaver.
I found dreamweaver is quite easy to use, the generated codes are quite clean, try it and you will love it.
Try wisiwygwebbuilder 4 it bassed on Visual Studio and is a treat to use. Saves all the hard work of HTMl but you still code the bits you need to.
Microsoft Frontpage is easy for beginner level.
The FrontPage product line is now replaced by Expression Web [microsoft.com].
I've found kompozer to be pretty decent, and you can't argue with the price
Xsitepro is easy to get to grips with if you are a beginner.
XStandard is nice for basic stuff: links, bold/italics/h1/etc., tables. Produces super-clean code.
Personally I use it in conjunction with a CMS because I can't stand editing raw and the WYSIWYG tool I make available to my users (TinyMCE) behaves badly when I toggle between rich text editing and plain text.
For sites heavy on CSS I like Expression Web much much better than DW.
I have used Frontpage 2003 and Expression Web.
From a user standpoint, I think they are about the same.
From a code perspective, I belive Expression Web produces a much cleaner and friendlier code for the search engines.
