Right, thanks for that. I'm not used to using maillists, this is why I'm prone 
to clicking on "reply" instead of "reply all".

English, Russian and German. The site is going to have all 3 languages. If all 
goes well, I can finish it in a week or two. www.zobin-online.de is the domain, 
in any case it should be live before end of march.

Yes, not pushing any programs at all would be a solution. It seems this might 
be the solution I'll go with.

I guess I'm still stuck in the past then? If CSS3 and 4 allow some logic to be 
executed on events like onmouseover, I'll look into them of course.

I'm not hosting it in a VirtualCenter (if that's what you mean by VC?), but 
rather at home, on a Raspberry Pi. No problem with remote ftp or even ssh if 
there is a need for it.

Thanks, kalithea sounds interesting. I'm too far into building the site with 
jekyll right now, but I'll definitely take a look on kalithea.

I'd like to have commenting abilities for random visitors. While jekyll really 
is more of a 'static site generator', there are plugins for administration 
purposes, so that the "content" can be "managed" remotely through a 
webinterface (adding new posts for example). With login and all that jazz. 
There is also a plugin for allowing the commenting and discussion of posts, I'd 
like to include it at least in the future, maybe even right from the start. So 
the line between a simple static site generator and a full-blooded CMS begins 
to blur right about there.

Yes, the term CMS is indeed quite vague.
