There may be times when you have a lot of repetitive information
that you want to display in the same layout on different pages.
Rather than just writing the same XHTML tags over and over again
the static pages can be created by server side programming using a
scripting language such as PHP.
For example, the contents of these web pages are stitched together using PHP.
You can't see it since the PHP code generates the XHTML.
Also, on the
Anchor Golf Society website, custom code is used
to ease the maintenance of the player lists and the tee times draws.
If the code can be easily developed, or found
in the vast Open Source libraries, then we may be able run a web site
which appears to be dynamic but without the need for a Content Management System.
This means you may not have a dependency on a database for storing the
information so your server requirements will be reduced.
