Software giant Macromedia (www.Macromedia.com)
released Macromedia Contribute in November 2002. This software allows
non-technical computer users to update their web content themselves,
without assistance from or intervention by consulting programmers

price your developer will give you will depend on the number of
pages in the site, the sophistication of the source-code, and competition.
