A customer recently saw me using this tool, liked it and asked if he could buy it. I said "no, sorry it's just an internal tool". But since this was a good idea, and maybe there are other people in the need of such a software, I've now cleaned it up a bit, named it WebsitePainter and made it public:
It's not a 'real' HTML editor but more a HTML generator, and is is possible to create full websites with it, including floating texts, images, gradients, web 2.0 style shapes and areas, flash, java, forms, and more. It is available for Windows and Mac OS X. It also fully supports Unicode (once I used it to create a Korean website for it) and should be quite easy to use.
If you like to try it, you can download it here.
Any feedback is welcome.

Just out of interest: What makes the Web 2.0 shape a Web 2.0 shape? *g*
But it does look rather nice. Just played around with it a little and although I don’t really like WYSIWYG editors, this one at least gave me the internals close enough to my fingertips to get out of my way. Good job!

about the web 2.0 shape: that’s just a name, most newer websites are simply using this gradient style. it’s shorter than ‘faked shiny reflection gradient shape’ :)

Hmm .. seem I have to test it. I normally create all my homepages (and sometimes for others as well) using Notepad++. But maybe I can (at least) learn something new from the code that is produced

Nice work. The generated markup sucks but it’s not worse than any other WYSIWYG editors out there do.
Here’s a bug: The program doesn’t ask if you want to overwrite an existing file. I had some existing index.html on my desktop (not made with WP) and it was overwritten when using Publish to local disk
