Probably the only thing that comes close would be Bluefish or Quanta. But they do lack a WYSIWYG type interface where you build the webpage by viewing it like you would in Frontpage or Dreamweaver.

Agreed. It's unlikely you'll be comfortable with Bluefish or Quanta if you've always used the wysiwyg functionality of FP. It may be a good time to get friendly with the code though - it's really not that bad, honest!
