Personally, I like the idea of a static site.  I have a dynamic,
database-driven site that handles documentation for an engineering project.
When the project is over, I would like to archive the entire site, including
the database and all document directories, onto a static, html-only, CD.
Has anyone done this?  Can it be done other than by separately displaying
and saving each page as an html page, and then manually creating the links?

I'm in search of suggestions on how to publish our dynamic content
(php/mysql templates) in some sort of "runtime" configuration that would let
users browse the site from cd.
