A question on a different topic; I believe Zend Framework is available on the IBM AS400/iSeries and based on some of your recent comments, I believe this is similar to Yii... but, can you tell me where I can find how this, Frameworks, differs from Templates like Smarty?

A template like Smarty is only used to create the final (HTML) output. In other words, you can use Smarty to separate the HTML from the PHP code to make both easier to work with.
A framework goes far beyond that, defining ways to create the entire Web application. This includes database connections, error logging, handling of user actions, and so forth.

Thanks very much for your time, insight, and enlightenment!

Zen Cart is a shopping cart framework (kind of), not a CMS.
The designer can provide the HTML and CSS and the programmer can do the rest.

Alternatively, you can create mobile Web sites. These can either be separate (from standard desktop sites) that are oriented for mobile devices or they can be one Web site that is "responsive": adjusting itself for mobile devices.
Mobile apps can do some things that Web sites cannot, such as use the device's camera. Mobile apps also have much better processing power (e.g., for games). But the push these days is towards creating mobile responsive sites, not apps.
