Default Content Management by Client

Looking at the bills, £1200/year is a tidy sum of money.
Charging a fixed amount by the month is great, since it avoids any quibbling about the details and keeps the result current.

For the client doing his own content management, is the result a mess? Your last remark indicates that the result can be quite good, once the work of setting up the content management is done, but I would be concerned about the client messing up the design somehow.
