Site Updates using WYSIWYG HTML Editor with FTP

When website (not blog) updates must be performed by non-technical administrative individuals, a dependable WYSIWYG HTML editor, with a built-in FTP feature, is often a very helpful tool.

This post asks if the folks here know of such a tool (i.e., a WYSIWYG HTML editor with a built-in FTP feature) that:

1. Costs no more than $90
2. Has an FTP feature more dependabe than Kompozer's FTP
3. Operates on the client-side (i.e., not web-based)

Several options have been tried and found to be either not dependable (e.g., Kompozer, Seamonkey, CoffeeCup) or too expensive (e.g., Expression Web, Dreamweaver, Contribute) or cannot properly edit website files that have already been made (e.g., XARA). Your suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

This something that is raised on a regular basis. I brought it up recently in this thread in the supporters forum, [webmasterworld.com...]

There just does not seem to be a bullet proof editor like you describe on the market. Everyone I have tried (and I have tried a few now) has weaknesses that I am not willing to tolerate or it is too difficult for the users.

The first company that brings a killer CMS app like this to the marketplace will make a lot of money!
