In most cases one can do more than most think using HTML and CSS: Our
universities corporate design was done by "professionals" and is backed
by a CMS:


Our dpertment didn't want to use the CMS, so we emulated it using
HTML, CSS and iframes:


which is *much* more convenient to maintain for us: I have a copy of
my page on my laptop, I can work on it while offline on a train, etc.

I don't want to discuss whether the above examples are aesthetic or
not (we are required to follow the coporate design, so have no
choice). The main point I want to make is: that everything is static
HTML makes life very easy for command line junkies like me ;-)
