Yay, yet another version of the website :-).

I am not really a fan of SSI myself, but if this is what is there, and people are familiar with it, I think it should also do just fine.

As I said, another alternative would be to use a static website generator. This requires no software at all on the server, just on the developer's machine, and also makes it easy to test before committing them, without neeeding a webserver. A list of such tools can be found here: <http://iwantmyname.com/blog/2011/02/list-static-website-generators.html>

But anyway, whatever works for people... Erik, do you have a preference?
