What would be ideal might be a cache system (not in the sense of browser 
based cache) where the server renders the static page the first time it 
is called (to a private file), creating the content once; then if the 
static page currently in residence on the server is up to date at the 
moment of a page hit, it would simply cat the static page to the hit 
request. If the page is altered only once per week, it would seem 
efficient to not generate it every single hit. Something like a time 
stamp change or MD5 change on the XML side could be used as a cache 
regeneration trigger.
