[Tor www-team] Site maintenance vs site use

It may be important to differentiate how the content for the site is
*maintained* from how the site is *rendered* for the end-user.  What I
believe Jekyll does (and other tools like it--I used to use Userland
Frontier for this), is allow one to maintain the content of the site as
individual files (or a large flat file database like Frontier), but then
allow the computer to do what computers are good at--all the relative links
for navigation, for example, or using includes to add boilerplate. If you
want to change the navigation on each and every page you could make the
change in ONE place, re-render the site in HTML (or any markup language you
like, for that matter), and publish it for users on a static server or to
browse from their file system.
