I am considering a CMS - One factor that will influence my decision as to which one will be- the ease of which I can import my existing 250 page site into it.
Can you help me find some documentation on importing existing sites into a CMS - particularly a Frontpage site?
Thank you

A CMS usually runs off of a database. You have to populate that database with the data that will generate the pages.
If you want to use a different server based CMS then why not use the existing site as-is and then add to it with the new system? Otherwise you'll have to populate the site by hand.

Technically FP is a CMS. It has sophisticated group management capabilities when coupled with a SharePoint server, and it has better WYSIWYG capabilities than any CMS I've ever seen.
