Just to comment on David's remark re Drupal.

I don't know what version he used and it did have a reputation for being difficult - but the version 7 was very easy to install and setup and apart from having to learn some "drupalese" (which is true of all of them - they all have their own terminology) I had very few problems. But if you you use Drupal Gardens it is even easier.

that it will be easily to make such changes; i.e., he or I could just
make them direct on the server, no FTP needed.

Wordpress is a very feature rich blogging system that CAN be used to create static web sites.

I'm very familiar with Wordpress. geekyramblings.net, imho.midrange.com, and a number of other blogs I host are run with Wordpress. My wife's church's website is also hosted on Wordpress.

If all you want is a content management system, you might want to look at Drupal ... but, in my experience, that's pretty complex to setup.
