And with the proper technology, you can get the best of both
worlds. You build the site as dynamically genrated, then "compile" it
to get the static pages you actually serve. That way you get all the
benefits you listed of serving static pages, plus the ability to use a
database and all it's associated tools for maintaining your data (if
you consider that an advantage, anyway).
