Why not find a early copy of Dreamweaver (3 or 4)? I know you mentioned that she would prefer WYSIWYG and doesn't want to become a professional, so I believe this to be the most simple solution to your question. My better half uses Dreamweaver MX and over the course of 2 or so days, she has more than got the hang of everything needed to produce a very impressive looking Website.
Just a thought, hope it helps..
I recently did a little bit of optimization work on a site that the gal did with FP Express last year. It looks fine, not a problem with it. And someone I know has been making her living off a site for several years that she uses Netscape Composer for, with very good rankings, too.
You'd never know those sites used WYSIWYG editors that come free with browsers. The less features they have the easier they are to learn and use.
Apparently she had a bad experience with Netscape Composer a few years ago and won't touch it again. She's also extending that to Mozilla's composer, and says she might try FP Express. Oddly enough, despite the insistence on WYSIWYG when she was giving me requirements, she's now happily typing away in Arahnophillia 4, which she downloaded and installed while I was asking for ideas.
