My friend is asking me about is there any FREE website builders that you can save to documents so you can use your own FTP. Hes got an FTP but just wants to build the actual website.

Two words: Text editor.

Really, nothing beats hashing out the template and stylesheet directly. You learn more that way, too.

I generally don't recommend building your own website if you have to resort to a WYSIWYG program. Such programs usually do weird things with the CSS and markup and may not always produce standards-compliant code.

I use HTML-Kit. It has a variety of options for coding or WYSIWYG design mode, and there's a non-free version to upgrade to if you're interested in paying a few bucks.

if you need, there many sites that offer free webspace, you can probably use their builders, then port the content over to your server.

Or you can download a free template then use a text editor to edit it.

Found this a while ago now when I wanted to dabble in HTML but had zero idea how to begin. It let's you do a WYSIWYG while also seeing the code of the content. Very good in that respect. Unfortunately, no longer supported, but the freeware is still available.

Pagebreeze looks like another contender (though I've not personally used it).
