I'm really allergic to most kinds of write-XML-and-generate-HTML
confusions, including mod_include ;the reason being that when I modify a
page, I want to be able to "test" it without having to fire up a local
web server or some other extra process. At least mod_include keeps the
source in HTML, and if capacty ever becomes an issue, it's pretty much
trivial to generate static pages from mod-included ones.

CMS rules but only for much more complex sites, and of course that burns
capacity even faster...
