Hi Randal,

I pretty much agree.  The only thing I really wanted to add on was that I'm pretty sure that the more high-powered or 'enterprise' level CMS solutions allow you to manage content other than simple text.  I generally think of the issues involved with collaborating on, revising, documenting workflow approval dates, and publication of architectural drawings as an application for a CMS ... rather than a blog.  But I suppose that managing recorded lecture audiofiles, newspaper photo archives, and collections of submitted resumes (in differing file formats as well as, conceivably, differing languages and character sets) might also be applications where I might recommend the consideration of a CMS ... but probably not a blog.

... and spectacled bears, Kodiak bears, and that most dreaded of creatures; the bugbear!
