WML (not this mobile phone crap, I'm talking about Website Meta
Language: ports/www/wml) allows to write templates, includes and complex
perl functions which get processed into static HTML pages.

No overhead (only static pages), but the same flexibility as with the
actual cgi version (as long as you only want to provide static content).

I've used it on my website and on http://www.illbreakers.com/ (german
text only). The index page for illbreakers in wml is:
#include "illbr_page.template" what="Illbreaker_s_94_Bubach"

<subject>Illbreaker's 94 - Home</subject>

Herzlich Willkommen<br>

The resulting index.html after running make has a size of ~5.8k.

The menu gets generated by some functions I've written,
enabling/disabling of some menu entries is based upon the "what=" part
(I use it to identify the actual page, the nav-bar contains the logic
how to handle each page). The nav-bar is the same source file for every
page, but the resulting output is different.


           I will be available to get hired in April 2004.
