I'm a lightweight Zope user, and I found it trivial to setup and very
pleasant to use.  To start off, you download the installer binary, run it,
and point your web browser at your own computer's address and Zope's default
port (which I forget now).

I learned HTML using Zope, and greatly enjoyed it; it's nice being able to
only type something in once, and having it affect all my pages.  The
almost-unlimited transactional undo was also very effective; I could make
changes without worrying about whether I could back out of them.
