Many thanks to Cliff and Jennifer for their help re: my question about
Drupal.

Cliff, I've been looking at Responsive Bartik D7
(http://drupal.org/project/responsive_bartik). It uses HTML5 with landmark
roles and has other encouraging accessibility "ingredients." If you have
any familiarity with it, I'd sure love to hear your assessment of its
accessibility.

Thanks again to you both!
Jan
