Default Maintaining a Front Page site :(

Hello friends, I have just been asked to provide a quote on maintaining and adding content for a site - http://www.wingeddolphin.com.au/ - but they built it using MS Front Page
What we are choosing now, is to find someone who can build the site to the same design as we have already, but in a manner that will exclude no-one.
I don't run Front Page anything. Blech! So is there any way I can maintain this site for them without the overhead of Front Page?

I would need to make the site accessible and able to be seen in non-IE browsers - no, don't bother looking if you don't have IE GGGRRRRRR!!!

If I took this site could I maintain the basic site look and feel but drop all the MS-centric crud so that it can be managed in say NVU for ex.

Any suggestions please.

Oh, and would this kind of site lend itself to changing into a (Joomla or Elxis) CMS site so that it becomes much easier to maintain and for contributors to update their content? And still maintain the look-and-feel of what they presently have?

Lastly any ballpark for charging this not-for-profit group for my services?

Cheers, Ian
