Abstract : Web site development is a difficult endeavor due to the complexities of programming languages and maintenance cost, especially for those who do not have sufficient computer background. This project was to develop a tool that makes web site management more convenient for non-sophisticated users. With the help of this tool anyone can create web pages and manage a website with no technical expertise or knowledge of HTML. The specific purpose of the work was to make the web more accessible to the people who work for non-profit organization, to allow them to publish websites without knowledge of HTML tools and to broaden the base of their work on the web. The project started with the aim to develop an “Easy to Use – WYSIWYG” tool. This manuscript describes the development process for the tool including the activities performed in each phase of the development process, the challenges encountered, the issues that arose, the current status of the project, and its features with continuing work. An important part in the design of the GUI for this tool is that it be easily used by those familiar with Microsoft Word.
