have you heard of adobe contribute? this allows you to set editable regions for people to edit text and add images. I wouldn't call it a cms but its a nice little thing to have.

I don't know of any 3rd party cms' out there but if you had the skill you could build your own with php or asp.

I don't understand why people that don't have experience in web design or development take jobs for it.

I don't understand why people that don't have experience in web design or development take jobs for it.is this the fault of the client trying to get it done on the cheap or the person thinking...

"i could do that... its going to be easy"

The thing is that once you market yourself as a web developer then your expected to know the lot. The client does not understand nor care what you can or cant do and categorises everything webby into the same box. From building a 5 page HTML site to building a secure gambling site. Both are the same as far as a client is concerned and thats scary.

I know a lot of people who use Joomla.

Both are the same as far as a client is concerned and thats scary.

How true that is.

Joomla is big and can be quite intimidating as well as mambo, but if you take the time to learn it, then it is a powerfull tool in your toobox. Also check out a smaller CMS called TextPattern: http://www.textpattern.com/
Now if you are using ASP then you have to look for something else like http://www.nukedit.com/ or check this place : http://www.scriptdungeon.com/free_asp_scripts/content_management/free_asp_scripts.php

hope it helps.
