As David suggests, this appears to be a Perl based CGI Content
Magagement script called EditTag:
If you need to add a page to the site, CSS can help you with the
presentation and layout of your HTML. I'm afraid though, that it is not
going to get you very far in interacting with EditTag, or otherwise
allowing a user to change/update the site content.
In that you are a 'very new newbie' and the client is unwilling to pay
for a site re-design (or, presumably a Web Programmer with Perl skills),
the best that you can do is to try to tack your static HTML page onto
the existing site, using CSS to make it blend with the other pages, and
make the client aware that they will not be able to change the page
content at will.
Hope this helps,
