    I have been going through a bunch of shareware and freeware offerings 
that I had on CDs that came with different PC mags and such and one of the 
offerings I saw last night was for a site creation app that might be perfect 
for what you're looking to do.  For one thing, it uses templates and the 
rest of the description sounded very similar to what you would get with an 
online site like Earthlink's.  I'll have to find it again, but that 
shouldn't be much trouble.  I'll send in the particulars once I locate it.
