        thanks for the url, bob.  i'll pull it up next time i use a 
        gui mailer.  wiki would let us edit things.  IIRC.  but it may
        be over-kill too.

        i checked out what was, i believe, "plone" last week.  i don't
        remember seeing plone on the opencma list.   

        (still chewing it over with my fellow writers.    unfortunately,
        none is a techno-geek.)   i believe you that dokuwiki was easy
        to set up.   how easy is/was it to *use*, tho?  ---I'm following
        the gimp tutorial, but still cannot get anything to work.  
        so if there are docs for this wiki software, they've got to be 
        fairly well tested.
