		Thanks for the reply, John.

I'm not looking for a way to redo the presentation at this point, although that might be a good long-term solution.

Upon closer examination, it looks like the site was built with Swish (version not immediately apparent)... looks like we'll have to go a step or two deeper to get the full story.

Their first thought was that they needed a web developer -- which may be the best way to go -- but I was wondering if anyone could recommend some easy-to-use editor that won't cripple or mess up the existing content.

It's pretty straightforward to separate the data and the presentation -- 
you can keep the changing contact data in the HTML itself (search 
"flashvars") or in an external XML file or web service which is called 
on demand.

But if the original presentation was made with the data hardcoded into 
the SWF, then it would need to be reworked to accommodate this 
separation of data and container.
