No, we don't really need a full CMS system, this guy though has no HTML
knollege, so would be dependant on the system to design the site.

I am using Wordpress already, although I use the Debian package due to
the security implications.  However, this is more of a website we want,
not a blog.

Hello Andrew,

We use Plone. It's easy for end users to use, but there is a small
amount of learning on the admin side for you to set it up. Once 
done, you can do a fair amount to it with CSS - I'd recommend a
good look at some of the example sites linked from plone.org

Do you really need a full CMS, with control of workflow, and
fine-grained ACLs, though? WordPress can be stretched to do 
quite a bit, and is easy to tailor for the look you want. However
you do have to keep a sharp lookout for secuity advisories.
