I see, so you're saying that Contribute is more similar to a WYSIWYG
editor -- say, like DreamWeaver -- than a full-blown CMS.
If so, then perhaps the cross-platform and FOSS 'Nvu' is worth a look:
"A complete Web Authoring System for Linux desktop users as well as
Microsoft Windows and Macintosh users to rival programs like FrontPage
and Dreamweaver. Nvu (which stands for "new view") makes managing a
web site a snap. Now anyone can create web pages and manage a website
with no technical expertise or knowledge of HTML."
