html cms vs. flash cms?

I'm working on a website for a funeral agency and they want me to create a content management system for them. I am not a programmer, but I'm trying to figure out how I can create a cms for them.

Which is easier to create - a javascript cms or a flash one?

Can anyone recommend a tutorial or a good website with tips?

Thanks a lot.

    cms is a big deal. the guts are neither javascript nor flash. it's a program with a database in the back ground on the server.

    you can then use js and/or flash to show the content. you can also use php asp perl python (or even java :( )

    don't bother creating a cms system. look at drupal or one of the other thousand or so free products out there!

    A content management system can be very complex; you're far better off using an existing CMS package to manage sites. A popular one for PHP/mySQL is called Drupal (http://drupal.org). You won't be able to create a CMS in Javascript, as Javascript is a client-side scripting language (the data only lives in your browser, and not on a server to display to other users).

    I would also not recommend a Flash CMS for the same reason as Javascript. Look into CMS built on PHP as the scripting language and mySQL as the database language.
