Well, there are two problems involved in using a CGI solution. One is 
performance, which isn't critical in all cases. Another problem is that I 
like to be able to use short, meningful URLs e.g. 
"http://somewhere.com/articles/20020215-1.html" instead of, say, 

Under Apache one could use mod_rewrite to rewrite urls of the former form to 
the latter. Do you happen to know if something similar is possible under IIS? 
I don't know much about IIS yet; until now I've only worked on Apache...
