Anyone familiar with CMS?

P: n/a
I am told that a first step towards entering my existing files into a
database for migrating to a content management system is to strip all tags
except for possibly paragraph tags. I don't want to lose the semantic markup
I have using the headers h1 through h6 (I actually use these for the purpose
they are intended).

Please forgive me if this is the wrong newsgroup to ask such a question.

If you know the name of the CMS, this would help to get
more specific answers.
I have been advised to make my web site more interactive, and told that a
CMS is an easy way to do this. The one I selected is Drupal, and a freelance
coder will help me convert. His only condition was that I move my domain to
a Unix server (I've been on Windows IIS for a long time). I hate to think
that converting to Drupal will lose information content though...

It may depend on the particular CMS, but if your markup is currently
semantically correct it would be wrong to remove all tags. If the
content is stored as XML rather than HTML, you might want to convert
those tags, but still not strip them out.

Put simply: No.

Drupal will allow you to retain content markup (<h1and the like). We
front this with TinyMCE that allows our non-technical Content Editors
to use a WYSIWYG editor within the constraints that we have defined.
