Having spent the time to learn asp.net (especially masterpages etc) I feel compelled to use this technology on every website. Of course some sites there is no question as if there is any dynamic parts to the site, then its asp.net 2.0 all the way. However, recently I have developed a couple of non Database sites and yet I still chose the asp.net route. Should of gone for pure XHTML and CSS?
With the additional questions/issues with search engine friendly asp.net pages, I wonder if I should opt for XHTML/CSS for static websites.
What is the consensus?
Actually, using ASP.NET for static sites can make sense. MasterPages and SiteMaps alone can save a developer alot of time. It also gives one a much cleaner upgrade path when the site does need to get more interactive.
