Hi All,

I have just moved to the dark side in the last week after 8 miserable years of PC crashing and general nonsense.

I have several websites developed in CutesiteBuilder, a very nice WYSIWYG web editor, that will not work on mac, and even worse, the company has sold out and the programme is no longer available.

How can I update these sites? Only option I can see is to purchase a new mac-friendly programme (or should I use iweb?) and copy from the web, work on and update, that's a mammoth task I really don't want to pursue...so if I have to purchase a new programme, which one should I go for? Or is iweb ok?

I'm not a IT geek, I do these sites for fun.

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to your solutions.

I've always loved Dreamweaver, now owned by Adobe.

It's quite pricey though.

Thanks Rex,

Yes, I know Dreamweaver is the dux nuts, but I do this for fun, so am after an under AU/NZ$100 solution.

Try look at Coda - http://www.panic.com/coda/ - Very nice Web Dev for OS X - only US$79 I believe.

Say hello to RapidWeaver. He's a revolutionary, but friendly piece of web design software made exclusively for the Mac. He'll help you create and publish beautiful, modern sites, compliant with today's web standards.

Sigh! Must be that enough people have moved to this side now for our side to be called the dark side :(

Or was that just a typo, and you meant 'moved from the dark side'? :D

Also you should consider using a CMS, look at what FullTimeCasual does for instance.

I know probably not quite what your looking for, but I do most of my HTML work in TextMate, and have also played with CSSEdit previously which is a handy app for dealing with CSS

Another vote for:
Rapidweaver
Coda
CSS Edit

all combined you'll have change out of your $100:D

I was just checking out NVU (as posted by Evad), it actually looks pretty neat, not too "fluffy" to look at, I think I'll give it a whirl :)
