Apologies if this issue has been asked before, I am new to the DNN forum.

I'm attempting to build a DNN skin from a HTML/CSS file using the Foundation front-end framework, but I'm getting a compatibility issue with a couple of the scripts. When these scripts are being used, the Control Panel drop down menus do not function.

Has anyone used Foundation with DNN7? I'm trying to figure out whether I can still use this framework, or if I need to re-code. If Foundation is not supported in DNN, I'll try Bootstrap or another program.

About the Foundation Framework used jQuery, you must be know with witch jQuery Version it is compatible.  Checking the Foundation Framework site I didn't found any Information about the jQuery Version compatibility. 

By Default the Foundation Framework is not integreated and tested with DNN Platform.  Jou have to add a hosted load on the ascx controls to implement the Framework.  I don't think you can implement it for used modules, without to Change the source code of the Modules.

In a sort-of-unrelated question, is a version of jQuery built into DNN7, or do I always have to include it in the ASCX skin?

DNN 7 includes jQuery and jQueryUI, you may get the version from Host Settings or release notes.

You should never include jquery in your skin itself using script tags this has the potential to cause issues with the way dnn itself injects jquery automatically into pages.

In theory - provided that your site has DNN Widgets turned on - the jquery engine will be installed automatically.

However, if you want to be completely sure - you should instead add the dnn:JQUERY control to your skin.

for .ascx skins: 
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="JQUERY" Src="~/Admin/Skins/jQuery.ascx" %> 


This will let dnn control the injection of the actual jquery library.
