I design small hardware systems that often require a GUI for a control interface. The systems I work with usually have a network connection and the ability to have a simple web server. Therefore, a web browser interface for control, operating on a LAN, is ideal since it's available on nearly all platforms.
I'm looking for some sort of web page design software that will assist me but so far everything I've looked at seems to be oriented towards folks designing commercial sites with fancy graphics, animations and so forth.
I'm more interested in things like buttons for user inputs and progress bars and text display areas for output, with the ability to perhaps display a graph or image. Is there anything out there that even comes close? The stuff I do is either for personal or open source use so I'd really prefer something that isn't too expensive.
