Hi Peter,

Thanks for the recommendations.  I like the look of CMS made simple, and 
will definitely download and test it.  I've used Smarty for quite a few 
websites, so that's a bonus.

I've been using the Wikipedia page, but with so many systems available, 
it's a very time consuming job reading about each system and trying it 
out.  It's good to narrow the selection down first with the help of a 
few recommendations.
