I have a client scenario in which users need to be able to edit content within a content editor web part placed on a page via site template, but they need to be prevented from removing the web part from the page.

Any suggestions? If there isn't a good way to achieve this with the CEWB, then is there a third-party web part that might work better for me?

Use a wiki page? – Paul Schaeflein Mar 7 '12 at 18:44
Well, I don't think a Wiki page is the right answer for this particular scenario, but I was thinking of putting a rich text area in a page layout. Users would have to have edit permissions to change it, but they wouldn't be able to remove it from the page. – Ben Collins Mar 7 '12 at 18:47

You can place a webpart in the pagelayout on a page. result -> it can;t be removed, but content can be edited. Another option would be to add a richfield editor as a webcontrol in the page layout.
