 Thanks. I've been reviewing a number of options and like the
CGI::Application / HTML::Template solution at this point. 
I'm picturing a site where the maintainer/admin will see flags for areas
which can be edited with a favorite HTML editor. 

Also, it needs the ability for the admin to add new pages based upon
existing templates, then click/edit editable regions which are stored in a
DB or files.
