cms for one page

I'm looking for the best way to allow editors to edit simple content (changing various captions and sentences) on a regular basis in a bootstrap-built web page. Particularly in mega drop-down menus. I didn't use a regular CMS option because the page is extremely designed (not by me) and it didn't seem worth the effort to try and fit a template to the design for only one page.
I was thinking along the lines of revising just those "dynamic" sections to allow ajax uploads from an external file. Then the editors could just edit that external file without having to go in and start fumbling about with the html of the web page.
Would this be a good idea? Does anyone have any better ideas?
Thanks,

Actually I'm looking for a way, without going to too much trouble, to make certain captions/paragraphs/sub-headlines on a web page, dynamic, so that they can be edited by non html editing people.

So no html formatting then, just text?

Thanks for your responses, but I guess I wasn't making myself clear. Anyways, I think I figured out what to do. I need to create a form that passes its responses to a php write file and then allow the web page to load those responses from the php write file.

Yes, that would be easy enough to do.  Some other thoughts: If it's a public page, how will you prevent the public from editing it? Otherwise, can you trust the content provided is safe?

Good point. I think I would not  have the form and write pages accessible and only upload the write page whenever it changes.

Thanks for your input. It looks like it might be worthwhile keeping in mind for future use, but for this particular project I've already created  forms  that output to a php write page that creates custom html sections and inserts the appropriate sections into the pages with jquery.
