wysiwyg page creator with FTP upload?

P: n/a
Does anyone know of a WYSIWYG page/ad creator with ftp upload abilities? I
need a tool that will let my computer-illiterate friends create an ad, with
pictures selected from their machine, and have it auto upload the images to
the ftp. I don't really want to have it upload the page, but I can have it
deleted afterward. The purpose is to let them create the page, add the
images, press the "GO" button (or VROOM, or whatever else you wanna call
it), and then copy the HTML and paste it into a shopping cart program. This
way, they can have an ad on my store with a buncha nice images. I know this
sounds commercial, but I'm trying to do a favor for friends that want to
sell some things on my site. No, I don't even have that set up yet, but I
want to get this done.

By the way, I'm familiar with free HTML web page design programs like 1st
Page 2000, but I don't think it does FTP uploads, though I may be wrong.

Thanks for any assistance.

There is no such thing as a WYSIWYG.

Be sure to click the english icon on the upper right corner. Unless you can
read danish.
It is geared for 800x600 and fairly close to wysiwyg.
Includes an ftp client.

Mozilla Composer might be suitable. You get it when you download and install
full Mozilla - it's over 10 megabytes to download, but you need to do it
just once. Composer has a nice manual in it, and you can use it either in
wysiwyg mode or to edit HTML, or to switch between these. The upload feature
is simple - once set up (with FTP userid and password), the user doesn't
even need to know he's using FTP. However the upload process appears to be a
bit slow for some reason.

What's the idea? Why not upload the page too?

I don't get it. Why copy the HTML?

If it's for a few friends only, you could create a subdirectory for each of
them and ask them to upload their ads (as HTML + images) there, and take
care of the rest yourself.

It has nothing I can't get for free. Except maybe flash.
