I've been browsing around the web, and haven't found anything that really stands out. Recommendations (please)?

I've used Front Page back in the day, which would be more than sufficient if I still had it, but I don't. Maybe something with similar functionality?
I agonised over this for a long time too - and then I discovered that OpenOffice includes functionality that's very similar to FrontPage. It doesn't qualify as lightweight in terms of disk space (but that's rarely at a premium nowadays), but it's hard to beat for ease of use - just open your html doc and edit it as if it were a Word doc. I use it for all my web pages (which are pretty basic).
