There's loads of other content management systems (CMS) like Joomla, try Wordpress, Drupal, e107, RadiantCMS.

It's all down to preference.

If you are struggling with the HTML, why don't you find a nice theme you like for a CMS and the use that, if it's not perfect then modify it as you need to.

I would use WordPress and/or hire me/someone to install/set it all up for you.

+1 for Wordpress, go to Lynda online training library pay for a month so you can access all the tutorials (you don't need exercise files). learn all you can about wordpress. Then go to Theme forest find something that suits you and then customise it like Sir SpankalotUK said. Best option and won't take long to pick up. Best thing to do is get a couple of months with Lynda then you can learn the basics of HTML, CSS and PHP too.

Do you actually need SQL and a CMS if all you want is a normal website? If thats all you need, just use something like Dreamweaver to build the site in HTML.

I use Wordpress and recommend it to friends - it's a lot easier and picking a theme and editing that is a doddle.
