Overriding Nice Menus CSS the Agaric Way

Technically, this is overriding Nice menus the Nice menus way...

  text-indent: -999em;
  background: url(widgets/default/star.gif) no-repeat 0 0px;

Drupal or Wordpress? Making a quick simple site

E-mail subject: Drupal or Wordpress?

Hey friend,

How is things?

So, my school has asked me to design a site for them. How do I use wordpress or drupal to do so? They can't pay me much or I'd just pay you to do it! They have hosting and everything, so I just need to create a little mini site to link off of their big one ... It is an aftercare program I work for... and l need to just create a number of pages for it. I would love to make a mock up today.

Thanks for any advice you might be able to offer,
