Can anyone recommend something simple for me to install that will provide the site owner with access to change the text on one page only?

If you search on Rich Text Editor you'll find a bunch more, but maybe check out the Yahoo one first, then Spaw is second simplest. And then there's the option just hosting the thing on worpdress.com on your own domain and be done with it.
Hey g1 - I see you're a member of the 10K club. That's a lot of posts (a lot of them very good too, I might add). Congratulations. I wonder how many words that is.
Anyway, I've done a slightly upgraded version from what you describe that has worked well for a small organization for several years now.
If you're willing to go as far as dealing with user authentication, you can create a login and simple admin interface. If someone has edit rights, s/he can click a link and get an edit screen, which is nothing but a text area. The 'editor' just pastes whatever s/he wants in there and it saves it as a file that gets included.
It is dead simple and way fast. It can be reasonably secure with a few input checks. And it integrates well with the more custom functionality of the site (reservation system and things like that).
I haven't bothered to integrate TinyMCE, YUI editor or anything and nobody has ever asked for it, but I don't think it would be that hard (especially YUI).
