Displaying text from an externall source

Hi guys/girls, I wasnt too sure where to post this as its not really a flash question.

Basically I have a page thats 100% html, no flash, php or anything and was wondering if its possiable to include text on this page from an external .txt file.

The reason I need to know is i’m helping a friend with a website and he wants it updating every other day, and with his lack of knowledge in html I need an easier way of doing things.

Thanks, John.
