Simple, no-maintenance content portal for non-profit

I need to create a simple portal with links to our own content, which will consist mostly of text documents--hand outs for people who don't speak English as a native language. Should I use a CMS or just build it by hand?

My site is hosted via Godaddy, and I have access to Cpanel. Something like Drupal feels like overkill, and Wordpress would require a lot of tweaking. I know 1990's-era html--should I just throw something together by hand, or is there an easy-to-install CMS out there I should be using?

90s-era HTML still works great. I’d either throw something together by hand, or track this in a GDocs spreadsheet set to be publicly-viewable.

Also, if you know 90s-era PHP, you can clone, adapt, or copy the similar-sounding Library section we just put together for our site; source code is here.

Thank you Migurski. Does your code require familiarity with Mysql?

No MySQL, though we do use the somewhat similar SQLite.
