    The easiest way I know of is to have the site done almost completely in CGI or PHP. Either that or use templates and SSI

    Hi,

    Define the content as a var and place it within a js file. In the main web page document.write the var in whatever location you want.
    From thereon in the user simply has to update the content by amending the js file. Make certain that you point out the possible dangers of quoting (in other words have him/her use single quotes only).

    The best way is to store your content in a database, MS-SQL, mySQL, Access or whatever. Then you would build your sites either on the "Fly" or publish your articles on a timely basis. You could do this with both ASP and PHP and possibly even with PERLscript.

    Taking on such an endeavor in javascript is bound to fail in the long run because of the growing complexity of a website.
