[Alert: This is not really newbie material!]

The import site feature doesn't create the required Manila messages - it's 
from an earlier Frontier approach that rendered static pages. The best way 
to handle your import is create an empty Manila site and write a script 
that loops over your files and populates the Manila message database with 
content extracted from each HTML file. You could also create Manila 
pictures for your images and gems for your PDFs. I like using XML-RPC for 
this kind of thing and most of the interfaces you'll need for this kind of 
work are documented:$700

You could also jump to the manilaSuite table and dig up the scripts for 
populating a Manila site directly.

For JavaScript, I recommend using an external .js file linked into your 
Manila template (same for CSS, btw). That way you can edit it with any 
external tool you choose. HTH.
