Me neither. (I also never had problem generating navigation from DB).
Sorry I didn't follow your suggestion not because it's incorrect
programming. It is because it is programming. Please understand I don't
hate programming (you can tell that by the fact I wrote other programs
posted on this list). I just thought about it and considered programming
not a required knowledge for web designer (not web developer) working on
mid-small size web projects. I could be wrong, but I really know some
people who started web design career without knowing programming at all
and I am thinking maybe I can help my grilfriend starts also without
programming, and thinking from a programmer knowledge I should be able
to tell how things can be done without programming. CMS for her is a way
to avoid programming, not a way to do programming. That's why I am
thinking either CMS or static XHTML/CSS/SSI methods.
