I have been looking for an easy way to update a calendar type setup for
sometime now. Reading thru the thread I see that using SSI's might be 
the answer. 

Can you recommend a way of uploading, updating - editing, the file in
an inexpensive manner. The site doesn't have access to any of the
tools such as PHP, Coldfusion, Active Server Pages etc...

I'm not even sure I would have access to CGI!

My ultimate target would be to hand the one page over to the client
so that they could update the material themselves.

thoughts, comments, experience...

Thank You
