Hi Mick,

I think Plone is worth a mention as a CMS. It is not a security 
nightmare like anything PHP/Mysql software and it has a nice 
interface for beginners.

I've been using it for Netzwerk IT (a German and occassionally English 
site -- see http://www.netzwerkit.de/ueber_uns/leaflet) 
for workplace activists (usually and often deliberately 
not unionised) since about 2002. 

Although it is by no means in anyway as comfortable as Plone, I also 
think Zotonic (http://zotonic.com/) is worthy of menion. It's a 
very interesting CMS. It is written in erlang (see 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erlang_%28programming_language%29) and is 
incredibly fast. Admittedly, you do have to work to set it up, but it 
seems that it could have a very interesting future.

Best wishes,
