I almost replied yesterday but got side tracked.

As others have said there aren't any good WYSIWYG web editors because
that's not how web pages work.  Despite the fact it's still how some
designers and developers think.

As for interfaces, if Dreamweaver seems clunky then you're out of luck,
there is nothing as smooth out there.

For your specific case it's going to come down to downloading a bit of
javascript that manipulates the DOM and tweaking it.   Nothing WYSIWYG is
going come close to as easy to maintain as that.  The scripts that come
with WYSIWYG tools are designed to be manipulated by the same tools and not
actual real people.
