Web development question: How could I get content from one page to appear on another?

Basically, I want to give someone permissions to edit Web Page A on Server X and have the content (essentially a few brief weekly announcements with little formatting) appear on Web Page B on Server Y.

Page A, the content source page, could be a regular publicly viewable web page on our school server or it could be hosted on Wordpress or something. It doesn't exist yet. Page B is going to be within our learning management system. The content from Page A would be just a portion of the content on Page B.

I wish I could just give this person permission to edit Page B but it's not going to happen. I keep thinking RSS might be part of the solution but I'm having a brain freeze on how to approach it.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

1. You might want to post in the Website, DB, & Software Developers group.

There are a few obvious ways to do what you are describing. If the formatting is simple enough, the easy solution would be to use an <iframe> to show the other site's contents.
