Having read druck's comment I downloaded WebGen2 and took it for a spin. It seems to be a very competent application that works with no fuss, but my goodness aspects of the user interface are a blast from the past!

The savebox has a 2D menu-type cream 'OK' button and a 'close' window tool rather than a 'Cancel' button. Dragging the directory icon uses a rotating dash-box (although I have solid icon drags enabled). In the main window, pressing ENTER moves the caret to the next writable field (should activate the default button). Pop-up menus do not appear aligned with the r.h.s. of the button that spawned them.

Am I one of only a small minority of people bothered by this kind of thing? I wonder whether it would help if the Style Guide were available online.

(DS1 - please don't take my criticisms personally - they aren't intended as such.)
