Making large design changes to an existing Contribute-based site without Dreamweaver or Contribute is not a quick or easy task, largely because:
There's no documentation for the Contribute tags.
There's no easy way to grant and revoke access keys for the Contribute client application.
There's no easy way to define master templates. These are required both ...

echo "Hello ".$user."!" outputs Hello Warren!
That's it! :)
