I have a site I am building for a client. They offer weekly specials for their restaurant. I/they have decided the best method for them to update these specials is to see if there is a possibility that I can set up some sort of webform hidden on the webserver to act like a "special modifier" I'm wondering if there is a somewhat easy way to do this already made up, or if it is something I'll have to engineer myself.

My goal is for them to open either an application or a webpage, type in the food items that will be on the specials and when they hit submit it will update the html file containing the specials.

This can be done with most server-side scripting languages (and a database), PHP is the most common (both are usually available at web hosts).

An easy solution might be to install a readymade blog software, just make sure you update it often since there are lots of bots on the web trying to exploit known security holes in older versions.
