it took a couple of hour long sessions to get her totally confident in the basics and she hasn't made a mistake so far...she wouldn't, she's even more careful about the site than I was, it's her business at stake
another client updates his booklists the same way...he's a small scale publisher and adds a couple of books a month to the catalogue by hand...he's not going to be able to handle adding new pages though...I'm hoping that the current structure should last him well into next year though
it's just a matter of coding so that the text is easy to spot, and so that the site design isn't in any way dependent on the amount of text on the page
but it wasn't worth my while to do the updates myself...and neither were either client about to pay out for a dynamic solution
And you don't have to wonder what's happening when one of your clients has just put all the pieces together and 'seen the light,' i.e., had the epiphanic moment. This excerpt from an email today:

You could teach the user how to put something in a text document and ftp it to the server and just include the document.

We do this all the time except one step further. Take a form with a text box and even a picture upload element. Have the script write this to a SSI. Really quite simple once you've done it once. (course then you have to train the client why a 1000 pixel wide bit map takes forever to download :) )
It's massively configurable and should be able to do everthing you need.
