There are a lot of different implementations of WebDAV for different Operating systems. Most implementations have been plagued with a number of vulnerabilities and open up new area's where hackers can try and gain server access. So I would be very careful before thinking of using.
More information on IIS 7 [iis.net] implementation which is completely rewrote from scratch for IIS 7.
I would not try to setup WebDAV as a non-Technical user to be honest too many ways to leave yourself open to attack. I would use FTP to transfer the edited files back to the server.
