Web publishing - Got tips for running a news site?

I want to run an online newspaper of sorts. I want multiple people to be able to access and post on the page without having to understand the heirarchy of the page or go through FTP and upload all of the files themselves. I want the main page to check for new content only on the page, and refresh with a running list of headlines, and a brief synopsis of the article.

Can anyone tell me how I would go about this? Is this something for pHp and XML? Will I need a content management system? Will I need to relearn MySQL? Or is this actually a very simple process that reuires only some basic knowledge of scripting languages and CSS?

Tiki-Wiki?
PHP-Wiki?
PostNuke?
WikiMedia?

Those should be able to provide the functionality you want.

You know, I feel stupid. I've known about PostNuke but never knew what it did. And when I did searches for web publishing, news website design, bla bla bla etc., I never saw anything. What do they call software like post nuke?

Regardless. Thanks for all the fish...er...assistance.
