I am a web designer and I wanted some tips in the following area:
Until now, I only built websites using dreamweaver, without any cms platform. If I want my client to be able to edit the site on their own, after I finish building the site, I know I need to use a CMS platform to build the site with, right?
My question is, what is better for me to use, Wordpress or Joomla? (I'm quite unfamiliar with both, and I would have to teach it to myself) Or is there any better cms platform out there?
Thanks for any help!!

WP is becoming the de-facto standard for smaller sites due to it's user friendliness and a plugin to suit any requirement and ease of themeing for designers, Drupal would probably still be the CMS of choice for larger more enterprise level sites, I would ignore Joomla personally.
