I pull myself once again from the murky depths of my daily affairs to bother everybody with an idle question: what tools do you use when building a static Web site? I'm rather fond of WebMake, although I have occasionally felt the urge to use ZenWeb . Heck, I've recently experimented with using Mason as part of my build chain. So what about you?
Okay, you in the back. Your hand isn't raised, but I can see the question you're about to ask. "Why not just dynamically generate all the common elements of your site on the fly?" Because I don't want to, okay? My home site has very little interactivity, and it seems like a waste of CPU to build a site menu on the fly every time somebody loads one of your pages. I like to save the dynamic approach for pages with actual dynamic content - image generation, stuff like that.
