Any php-based program
...
Several sounded perfect for the task.

Problem solved. Why use a less suitable system just to please a few irrational visitors?

    Heh, what have you got to do if most of those irrational visitors are your manager(s) you happen to report to? ;-)

    The choice of a suitable system really rests with the sort of audience you expect. From my experience, I know that developers are less picky and wouldn't buckle at a system that requires more intellectual involvement in exchange for greater flexibility. Take this site for example. To type out a decent and well formatted post, I have to literally use raw HTML. Further, there's a set of 'special' tags that are unique to this site (or rather post parser, or whatever the name ;)

    Whereas as a developer I don't mind this extra effort to ge the post done -- in fact, I appreciate the flexibility I have now --, non-developer types may find this feature inappropriate to them and more of a hassle than a benefit. ;/

      It's an entirely different issue if you're being paid to run the site. From the sound of it Jazz's site isn't run to make money.

      Secondly, managers are never irrational, they're infallible. If for some reason a developer can't understand their manager's reasoning, it's either because they are simply intellectually inferior to the manager or that they have less information about the true goal of the project. Take Java for example, they obviously have some confidential information that justifies it's use for even the most seemingly unsuitable projects.

      If you still think it's necessary to please a few logic-impaired visitors, use the php system but change the file extensions to .pl, they'll never know ;-).

        Very sneaky ... I like it ;) I'll keep that in mind.

        Managers weren't an issue here, and it would have been easy to keep the php system if it were just "a few irrational visitors". I received so many emails complaining about it, I simply couldn't keep up.
