Just out of curiosity

do you know of any other CLIENT-SIDE content management systems? I know we have CityDesk and Macromedia Contribute.

Anyone?

Write your XSLT templates and apply them to your content which should be put in XML files.
MSXML or LibXSLT (both freely available) will do the generation for you.

OT, but *please* ... use a better subject like:

"Client side Content Management Systems"

Out of common courtesy.

Windows + windows explorer + a pc with a hard drive, or
MacOS + finder + a mac with a hard drive make great content management systems.

Unfortunately, you have to make folders and put stuff in them in a sensible way yourself, but hey, if you can't do that with plain paper and folders, no piece of software will save you.

Sorry Joe. Will avoid that mistake in the future.

Why would you want a CLIENT-SIDE solution?  SERVER-SIDE solutions allow for much richer interface and, as Joel says, the web applications are the future.  ;)

Ok, so I'm a little biased.  ;)

Because I have no control over the server. I have an account and not much more. Besides, I feel all warm and fuzzy knowing that during the night the data is sleeping next to me on my computer.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Could you just run a server on your desktop/notebook/"client" machine?

Macromedia Dreamweaver (has site mangement tools)

That CityDesk clone in Java

Some Server-Side CMS packages + Apache, PHP & mySQL on the client + FTP.

If you want a simple single-user solution, try CUTESite Builder.

They violate the cardinal law - they don't have any screencaps.

MarkTAW:

Make sure you submit that for O'Reilly's "Joel on Software Hacks".

Oddly, it only works in IE. In Forefox you get this message:
