If you are trying to avoid the use of a database to modify
the content of a website the other option would be using
<CFFILE> and <CFDIRECTORY>. You could have a folder
which contains text files and the CF document would simply include
them into the table's column. To edit the static text files you
could just list the files with <CFDIRECTORY> and then use a
form with <CFFILE> to edit the files.
