You could look at it from this point of view. There is the difficult and
long learning time Dreamweaver and Flash. They do everything, but they
require understanding that takes a while to acquire.

Easier, not quite as powerful but still complex is GoLive

Easier again is Freeway, and again not quite so powerful.

Nvu comes about here, like Freeway relatively easy to use.

Composer is the no-frills, no pretences, easiest of all to use.

I would advise starting with an easier program and a good how to book. You
are less likely to get lost and as time progresses get a more sophisticated
program. Only you can know just how far you want to go in the end. And cost
always needs to be justified by the amount of use you get out of something.
