Free Website editor

Looking at building your own music website?
Here's a good place to start.
I stumbled across this site last night while serarching for a good website editor that would do a decent job of redoing my own site.
(My original site was built using Photoshop CS2 (which I own) and a trial version of Adobe's "Go live".However I have discovered a small bug (rollover button effects not working on every page) and also wanted to add some more pages to my site.
Since I couldn't justify purchasing Go live - it does tend to mess things up a bit and is relatively expensive for the amount of times I would be using it, I began looking for something more suitable.

Here's the rundown from the Nvu (pronounced N-View) site.

Finally! A complete Web Authoring System for Linux desktop users as well as Microsoft Windows and Macintosh users to rival programs like FrontPage and Dreamweaver. Nvu (which stands for "new view") makes managing a web site a snap. Now anyone can create web pages and manage a website with no technical expertise or knowledge of HTML.

* WYSIWYG editing of pages, making web creation as easy as typing a letter with your word processor.
* Integrated file management via FTP. Simply login to your web site and navigate through your files, editing web pages on the fly, directly from your site.
* Reliable HTML code creation that will work with all of today's most popular browsers.
* Jump between WYSIWYG Editing Mode and HTML using tabs.
* Tabbed editing to make working on multiple pages a snap.
* Powerful support for forms, tables, and templates.
* The easiest-to-use, most powerful Web Authoring System available for Desktop Linux, Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh users.

I searched the web for a car template and I found on httP://www.free-dreamweaver-templates.org. I clicked on the link and it seemed to take me to another site, I'm not sure if it's safe to buy from a site like this. The templates look really good but they don't seem to go with the rest of the site and the payment section is under a completely different domain. Any ideas?

If in doubt Muhummad,it would be better to avoid any site you feel may be suspect.
Also check the security - if you can avoid using your credit card and use Paypal instead then do so.
Kind regards.
