There are two types of WYSIWYG editors, the desktop editor and the 
browser-based editor.  From your description you may want to look into the 
browser-based wysiwyg editors. Your client is not trying to build a site 
from scratch, just maintain frequent updates on an existing site - 
browser-based editors are designed to do just that.

Browser-based editors are a fairly new concept but there are dozens of very 
good programs available, from free to ridiculously expensive, that can 
probably do just what your client wants. Some are components that run 
inside of formal CMS systems, some are standalone editors, and some even 
use the W3C concept for CMS/DAV - which makes content debasing etc. obsolete.

A search for "wysiwyg" or "contenteditable" at google will be a good place 
to start looking.
