Hello there,
if your site has a small or medium size, and you deal mainly with articles,
and static contents, I'd suggest Drupal too. As you can see, with some minor
fixes, we obtained a fully WAI compliant website using drupal at


Changes involved tabindexes, acceskeys and some javascript tools to
improve navigation and customization. If you have some PHP knowledge,
you can easily customize Drupal, thanks to a complete online help about
APIs, functions and HOWTOs. On the other hand, I think Drupal is not a
good choice if you need to develop a BIG site, using xmlrpc, soap, remote
database accesses, complex shopping carts. For these purposes, I'd
suggest looking at WebGUI (Perl) or Magnolia (Java), but they need more
heavy reworking to be fully WAI compliant.

Have a nice day,
