NVu  is very usable, but it's a dead project as far as development goes. 
Our SCUBA diving club has switched over to Komposer. Komposer is NVu's 
progeny, and it more stable w/ fewer bugs. It still doesn't handle 
frames, but that's not a problem for your format.

http://www.kompozer.net/ for info and downloads.

One suggestion: Build a fresh newsletter template using Komposer. 
FrontPage generates really bloated HTML, and the files are much larger 
than they need to be.
