What is the best and easiest way to edit a website online fr

Specs: Windows 7
I am looking to create a website for a friend, i would like to make the site in Dreamweaver and then uploas to the hoast. However a small text section on the site needs to be edited daily, from any computer. Also it is to be edited by someone with no HTML knowledge. I was hoping that web hosts would allow you to see the page in design view and then edit the text, however this doesnt seem the case with some web hosts. Is there an easy way in which a small text area on the site can be edited daily? Any help is appreciated, and if any one knows of a webhost that allows this. Thanks

This is what I would recommend..

You are right about webhosts allowing you to see the html page in a design view, however, its most likely going to be all in code.

What I recommend is to show your friend how to find text on a page (Ctl+F) and have him/her type out the original text, have the text located and show them that they can edit it that way and save it.

I hate to say it, but if your friend wants to do this, they have to know a little about what's going on and how it works.

I wonder if you could put a HTML file on your site that your friend can edit daily, then use PHP includes to place that file into your site template. That way, your friend would only edit and see the small portion that needs a daily update rather than accidentally modify something else in the process.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.
