So, here's what I want to do, but I don't know if Drupal is the right tool.
I want to redesign/move to CMS a site with 10 or so pages.
Most of the pages are pretty static, but I'd like to use a CMS so my client can edit text on his own.
He also blogs a little and has a mailing list to manage.
Blogging is obviously what Drupal is built around, and it's easy enough to set that up.
I see that there's a list manager for v. 5.x, so I'm guessing someone will develop one for 6 soon.
The site needs to use custom XHTML and CSS.
I've read the Theme manual a dozen times, and cannot figure out what I need to do to build a theme,
hook a few blocks (is that the right term? ) into the layout, and go.
I am an experienced web designer, so I know XHTML and CSS cold.
I have a little experience with php, and can usually figure it out if I have some clear instructions.
I don't have a problem editing code, but I don't know how to start...
Anyone have some insight for me?
