I would like to create a corporate website with members area. Importantly, I want many novice webadmins to be able to modify static content themselves.

Therefore, I got the idea to create the site using Google Sites and insert elements with width and height in places where I want dynamic content. The website would be read using PHP on a different server and the marker elements would be replaced with dynamic content created by PHP.

What would be the drawbacks of this approach?

or just load IFRAMES containing the google site content pages into the main website? – Digital Lightcraft Sep 24 '12 at 12:41
@DarkcatStudios I thought about this, but if I have several static content parts on each page, like header footer, and various static content spread all over, then my novice users would not be able to change any of the layout on the page. – David Sep 24 '12 at 12:47
