With respect, this is mullarkey. Ireland.com is backed by a database. For
example, one can search previous issues of the Irish times for whatever. I
don't know what they use for this, but you can enter a search string, and
get back dynamically generated pages from a database listing the matches
found in the archive. I can't see how www.buyandsell.net, www.ebid.ie,
www.nixers.com and www.slidefile.ie could do what they do without being
backed by a dabatase. I know www.inpho.ie is database backed, because I
built it. I'm sure there are a large number of others. Or did you mean
something entirely different ?
