Is there a good, free product out there that I can install on a friend's webpage so he can update HTML files through his browser and not have to know any HTML? (details inside)

It can't be blogger or movable type or something with a lot of extra features like that. Basically I designed a site for him which uses a lot of includes in order to separate various content portions on a single page, the idea being that he could then update the text files individually from notepad and upload them when he felt like it, without having to get into the structure of the page.
The problem is that it turns out that this is too complicated for him. He needs to be able to do standard stuff like drop in images, bold text, links, all really basic stuff. So basically this would be a simple editor like the one in Movable Type, but it would just update a couple of text files, which would be be updated through the browser.
