I'm managing a site full of static pages and I'd like to simply drop in web-based editing functionality for certain pages on the site without all the features of a full fledged CMS.

What should I look at?
Cheers

Welcome to WebmasterWorld oceane.

I've done this with MovableType.
I make a template using my site design and edit the content portion of the page. This can be good for one page, or a series of pages.

On one site I use it to run the News section. Anyone can use the online WYSIWYG editor to add or edit news stories and publish to the site.

Thanks bill! Not sure if my post made sense, but I'm actually looking for something that I can drop into an existing HTML page instead of having to redesign the site from scratch on top of MT.
The only thing like this I've found is Wikiarea (google it).
Neat stuff for sure, but it's a hosted service so I'm not lovin' it.

No site redesign is necessary. You only have MT create the page(s) in question.

Wikiarea still requires a back end to operate like that. You need a system of some sort to edit the data on the pages. Whether you run the scripts yourself or rely on a third-party you'll need to run something to get that functionality.
