The benefit I'm hoping to find is a solution which can be handled better then
I have now.

The site is now build in Textpattern cms and I needed a very complex script to
make it work.

If I change it now by adding a new item in the side menu the site is unstable
and the text is shown on the wierdest place.

Also there is not a solution I can build the menu like I want without building
it statically.

I don't agree with you. Most of the cms can only handle a fixed number of
articles on a page.

So I need flexibility to make what I have in mind and making all the site in
html is a hell of a job.

Expecially when I need a new layout or something else changed.

Because I did not find any html or php solution which can do what I have in

And I read that with xslt I can build flexible sites in a way a person wants.

And yes, im not experience in xslt but also not in C or php.

But if you know a solution I can build the site without xslt Im happy to hear.
