    I'm going to be building a website for my friends small business. Basically all its going to entail when I get done with it, is him updating articles of them in the paper and maybe changing the text on the front page.

    I remember seeing (about a year ago) a demo for when the final user comes to the site they type a word "admin" was the example, and a popup box appears allowing them to login. From there they can highlight text and change the words.

    That was about all it showed. I thought that was an example of a CMS editor that could be added on to an already completed site. Looking into drupal and some of the other CMS's discussed here it seems you build around the CMS.

    Them being able to change the text is basically what I'm looking for as they don't want to use HTML editing (as easy as it would be) and I don't want to do the updates for them.

    Any ideas?

    "Build around" isn't' the same as "integrate". Most CMS's accomplish what you've exactly described.

    install wordpress
    download newest version of atahualpa theme
    install wp-cms plugin
    install all in one seo plugin

    your friend will be able to log into wordpress and change whatever he wants without the need of any html / php / css knowledge

    Drupal/Wordpress is exactly what you need.
