Just to throw a little more information into this. A CMS typically takes
care of the HTML content on its own. Thus if you use HTML within your 
content it will correctly render. On the flip side if you don't it will 
parse it against its own styles.

A lot of times they use their own markup language like a Wiki does. This 
is one of the things that people like about them.

Personally I have never seen the need for yet another markup language 
(no pun intended to YAML) and HTML works just fine for me. I type fast 
enough to where it isn't and issue and after writing a book in DocBook, 
HTML is childs play.

My vote is that if we are going to use a CMS it should be a CMS that is 
mature. Bricolage for example, however as we are PHP people we probably 
would have to go with Framewerk.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
