What WYSIWYG HTML editor should I give a novice [duplicate]

I have a friend who wants to have a simple website for his business. But he is a total HTML novice. I'm willing to set up his hosting for him, and teach him how to upload content to it. I'll even stub out the web site for him. However, I don't want to maintain it for the rest of eternity - so I'd like to set him up with a WYSIWYG HTML editor.

"You want Cushy CMS. It's a simple online editor for web pages. You create a shell, add a class name to a div or other tag and voila! it's editable on the Cushy page.

It's very easy - I use it with all my non-saavy HTML users."
