Check out the Index to Free Databases, a FAQ posted to comp.databases (&
of course news.answers). It's also available in an HTMLized version at
If you look through it you'll find several SQL-compliant DBs at various
stages of production-readyness (or not!). There is also a non-commercial
(though somewhat incompatible) version of rdb available at
The commercial version of rdb has a nice report generator that makes it
trivial to dynamically construct HTML pages from the result of a query.
The non-commercial version will do the same, but it's far harder to deal
with (uses the nasty Perl report syntax).
