Do I Need Contribute, or What? - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

I have been maintaining an organization's website - free. I was using FrontPage, but it - of course - is being phased out and replaced by SharePoint. I have used the trial on this, but was not overly impressed. Would Contribute be a better choice to continue managing this site without knowing HTML and all of that. I learned FrontPage (and SharePoint) by using them on the run...I do not need anything too fancy, although i would like to start doing sites for some small and homebased businesses that can't afford the usual fees from website developers... What do you ...

    I don't think Contribute will address all of your needs. Frontpage has much
    proprietary code that Contribute won't recognize, and Contribute is only a
    mediocre web design tool. In Adobe products, Dreamweaver would be the better
    choice. It can do a wide spectrum of web design and development. It can also
    "convert" Frontpage code to standard HTML. Contribute's strength is content
    management, when you have multiple users adding content to a site.
