My client wants to use external text files to update content on his web page. Is there an easy way to do this without using php pr xml? thanks!

You can do it with server side includes -

In PHP -

<?php include("file.txt") ?>

Or like so -

<!-- #INCLUDE FILE="file.txt" -->

EDIT - Oops thought you said 'with PHP' ... well try the second method anyway. And, Forgot to say you need to use .shtml instead of .html.

I found that <!--#include virtual="textfile.txt" --> works better.
