I've seen demos of web-based systems where the vendor sets up a database-driven site and gives the client a web interface for creating and updating content. Are there any cheap ways to do this with off-the-shelf technology? I believe that Macromedia has a tool that does this, but the client has to buy the $99 app.

I'm looking at open-source PHP-based CMS systems now for a non-profit I'm working with, but can not yet give a definitive answer as to how well any of them work in the "real world".

Macromedia does indeed have a $99 tool for just such updating: "Contribute". I've heard good things about it.

FWIW, I can't imagine how someone can justify a web presence, request that they be able to make changes themseleves, but balk at spending $99 to be able to do so -- it's akin to buying a car and demanding to do your own repairs, but being unwilling to buy a set of wrenches.
