You are probably looking for a publishing tool like org-mode or Emacs
muse. Org-mode is part of Aquamacs and comes with HTML export, while
muse seems not to have been maintained for quite a while. According to
the org-mode manual you can even create and upload complete web
projects. Another way to do this is to write your project in Markdown
and convert it to HTML with Pandoc. I've been told on the Pandoc list
once that there is even a solution for creating an RSS feed if you
want to blog. You could also write your website as a LaTeX document
and convert it to HTML with TeX4ht. I have not switched to any such
solution so far and keep writing single HTML files as in the old days
because I want to keep my personal website as simple as possible. The
simplest solution is indeed Emacs and HTML mode, as you already said
in the beginning.

Hope this helps.
