I have a site which consists of a few hundred catalog pages. The 
items in the catalog are pictured 9 to a page with accompanying 
descriptions. The homepage features an item-of-the-day, as well 
as the past 3 featured items. The entire site is static and 
regularly updated manually by me. I don't believe it'll take much 
to fully automate the site, which is what I plan to do, or have 
done, over the next week or so. Now for my questions:

1. The dynamically-generated pages must remain indexable by 
search engines. That is, indexing robots must be able to crawl 
the entire site by following the various links to all of the 
catalog pages. Do the strings that are passed through the URL 
appear to search engines as dynamic, and therefore get ignored?

2. It's important that the site remain easily portable from one 
host to another. I have no plans to move it, but it would be nice 
to know that it would be a simple matter of plunking it down 
somewhere else if I needed to. Is there any advantage to using a 
flat file over mysql in terms of portability? How significantly 
would performance be affected, considering that it's not likely 
there will ever be more than 1000 catalog items (rows)?

I'd be interested in hearing how you'd put this together.
