WYSIWYG Web design with new iMac

I purchased the new iMac 21" 16gb ram with fusion drive last month, making the jump from PC to Mac. I'm loving the new machine and everything about the OS - Except there's one problem....

I run a mobile DJ/Disco company and run my own website for the business. I had made my website on my old PC using Xara Magix website designer 5. So I purchased Magic website maker mx for Mac, thinking it would be at the very least similar... Unfortunately it's not (I hate it) - and after searching for similar products I'm really struggling. I don't want to have to dust off the old PC for this if I can help it after getting used to the super fast iMac!

My question is - Can anyone recommend a WYSIWG Web designer for mac?
I'm hoping I'm missing some obvious solutions!

Thanks in advance!

Not really a fan of rapidweaver. It dosn't give you a lot of freedom over text/object placement and there's not a lot of tools.

Dude checkout www.basekit.com - they even do all the hosting. Great product. Steep learning curve.
