May I ask why that site should be avoided?
I will comment on some random excerpts from the site below.
It is actually one of the cleaner sites out there. The sample code is at least legible without me having to <ctrl><mousewheel-up> to read it. It looks like it has a W3Schools feel to it.
Should I create a deliberately full of bullshit clean site with a W3Schools feel, would you trust everything that's written into it, or consider it valuable?
(Yes: I have issues with the tutorial being geared for web development, but that's an idiosyncrasy of mine so I'm not bringing it forth as a "rational" argument.)
I'm not commenting on your will to make your site smaller and better by means of server side scripting and I wish nothing but the best for you in this respect.
A select box, a hash of arrays, and a loop might save me the headache of maintaining 9 seperate web pages. (Though I am not sure about how Google will list it; will I get the listings for each option <hoping>, or just the one, or none because it would be a Perl script.)
You surely have several options to have all of your pages indexed. Of course you can make your urls also look like they were those of a static page. Take for example the link above and consider the url http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AJAX: do you really think that there's a physical /path/to/wiki/AJAX on the machine running the server for that site?
Oh, and sorry for not linking it. I am still getting used to posting here. This forum is unlike the ones I am used to where I have to actually use html code to make by posts look good, though, I can handle it.
That's not a problem: you can learn as you go. You can use some restricted (which is very good, IMHO) HTML code in your posts. You also have shortcuts that make your life considerably easier. To me it's much more handy to write e.g. [wp://AJAX] than <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search?search=AJAX">AJAX</a>.
