This seems to suggest that you are looking for an WYSIWYG, drag-n-drop, editor? Or do you mean a proper editor/ide?

And for which server-side language?

Not sure then.. maybe WordPress or other similar CMS?

For a WYSIWYG editor then maybe KompoZer, although I don't use such editors myself, but it might suit the missus.

What is it for ? If it's for one project, she'd better use a CMS like Wordpress, Drupal or Joomla.

she got hired as a marketing person for a company -- she will be the only office person this company has so she will be doing everything....

she has 20+ years in advertising and public relations and will now be running all the companies information. They have a website but she hates it and wants to redo it

She is neither a programmer nor a graphic designer, so she needs an existent structure she can personalise, otherwise the website will take ages to build.

CMS are definitely the best choice and I would go for Wordpress which is simple to set up even for a neophyte. She will have a lot of base templates to choose from, "low level" stuff such as uploads are already implemented, it has blog capabilities, an active community publishes plugins and widgets everyday and she can open the template files and rewrite some HTML or CSS if needed.

Moreover, Wordpress is a standard. Many webdev companies manage Wordpress sites, so if she ever gets bored she can always ask a professional to continue her work or bring new features.
