There is also PostNuke, another open source and free CMS. A list of its features is at
yes&id_cat=40#q268 . The website of STC Chicago looks pretty spiffy I think

Nvu is an excellent, free, open-source HTML editor with a very good
WYSIWYG mode. Users can publish updates to the site directly from

A non-technical but reasonably intelligent user can learn to use Nvu
