Are there any plugins that will keep a version history each time a page or post is saved/updated?

Even if it is an offline editor that is able to do this, that works too.

Hi brettr,
One that I know some clients of mine use is Revision Control:
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/revision-control/

Revisions are built into wordpress but not as functional as most would like, make sure you update your WordPress then you can install that plugin to make it much easier to manage and control, once installed you're able to both manage revision settings/configuration and also quickly and easily "roll back" a page/post/etc to a previous version or compare the current to an old version, etc.

As for the built-in revision functionality open a page or post and in upper right select "Screen Options" and ensure "Revisions" is checked, if it is not check it - you have now enabled revisions on that post or page. For more information on the built-in revision support in WP you can use the following links:

Let me know if you have any questions & take care!
