Nvu is a good choice for beginners: it's standalone and it has lots of easy-to-use features that aren't included with the real Mozilla/Netscape Composer.
It sounds like for all intents and purposes, your best bet would be Nvu. If you ever do learn how to code HTML, then I'd definitely say to trade up to Visual Web Developer.
