how to use Contribute to edit html or java script - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

I have a client who use Contribute to edit web pages but they are unable to edit the html or javascript. I have a javascript photogallery they want to update but they can't. Is there away around this? I tried a flash gallery but they still can't update the xml file. Am I missing something here?...

    You can give your users the rights to Edit page source in external application
    (both for xml as javascript):

    1. Main menu>Edit>Administer websites, pick site
    2. Users and Roles, pick role, click Edit role settings
    3. go to Editing and check 'Allow users to edit web page source in external
    application'

    When your users opens (using the Choose btn next to addressbar) a .js or .xml
    file in Contribute (tested in CS3) just click the 'Edit btn' and Contribute
    will open the file in the editor you selected.

    How to select the editors:
    1. Main menu>Edit>Preferences
    2. go to File Editors.

    If this does not work in your version maybe you can use Main
    menu>File>Actions>Edit page source in external application.

    I thought Contribute was made to allow the clients to update their web pages. Why do I need to have an external application to edit the html or javascript?
