Since aardvark has already plugged his CMS, I'll go ahead and do the
same with the one my company makes.

You can check it out at http://www.macrovista.net/

Our system combines both content management and site building/design so
it may or may not be what you are looking for.  There aren't too many
CMS's I've seen in the space between the very low end
build-your-static-site and the very high end (Vignette, Broadvision,
Interwoven, etc) other than blog builders like Movable Type.  It seems
like in order to be affordable you have to make it too simplistic to be
useful.  As you make it more powerful and customizable, then you start
having to devote alot of resources to implementation and the overall
cost jumps way up.  I think that folks like aardvark and myself are
trying to hit that middle area, but its certainly an undefined, immature

Good luck
