If you don't want to remake the website, you need to find some why  
for her to use GoDaddy's software -- which suggests IE Win emulation  
of some sort.  (I... assume you tried Firefox?)

If you are willing to convert to some new system, there are CMSes out  
there that are free and very useable.  I have built websites for non- 
techie friends using WordPress -- it's nominally blog software, but  
is quite usable as a straight CMS.  I believe Drupal is also free  
software, and widely regarded (though I am unfamiliar with it).
