Hi Peter,

That's very kind of you - thank you.  I'll look into it.

I agree with your comments about over-complicated CMS.  I have created 
quite a few 'hand made' content management systems before, as the task 
of finding, learning and testing a suitable ready-made CMS usually ends 
up being bigger than just writing the necessary functionality.
