What do you mean by dependent files? CSS, js, php, and other things a 
knowlegable person can edit directly (with the right password),

or something that actually needs Dreamweaver to edit it?

 From the online tutorials, I see no technical reason I can't edit the 
html files on her server directly, to make small changes to the site, 
but she's of the opinion that it's impossible.

(I'm not suggesting I actually do it. Her site is pretty good, and her 
developer reasonably responsive when she needs to update it. I just want 
to get my own facts straight.)
