[thelist] Client wants to update page content

I just checked out the FileMan demo. Nice product.
However, it looks like there is no separation of content from code or from page
layout "template". The chef will have to read and edit barebones html and do it
in an html textarea.
Is there a way around this?

BTW, I've never used Zope, but it might be a good solution for the restaurant.
