When a client hires you specifically for a small scale website-- how do you handle updates and maintenance when they do not wish to pay you an hourly rate and would prefer if they do it themselves? Are there user-friendly code editors out there that are free that I can recommend they look into?

I normally recommend using SeaMonkey if they want to edit the code or as a WYSIWYG editor.
What sort of format is the site in?

Have you considered setting them up on a CMS or blog (such as wordpress)? You could make a custom template for the site. This way they could simply use online forms to update content and they would be contacting you less. I hope that helps.
