The thing I noted as David's really interesting point was about how linking
is done - it is possible to have "natural linking in the flow" when content
is stored in a database, but many tools don't lend themselves to doing that
very readily, unfortunately.

Still, many tools is not all tools, and there are some good things out there,
and good ways of handling content.

cheers

  David,

  It is possible to have the best of both worlds. Store the all the bits of
  your site in a content management systems, all in standard HTML (because
  your content management system can link up with other HTML generation
  programs or text editors), publish pages to a static server or generate them
  dynamically.

  One XML document is just like one record in a database. If you want to have
  a manageable XML storage/publishing system I think you will still need a
  database of some sort.
