I'm with you in that regard. Static content which is evergreen... goodness, I've some sites that fit that description with page counts ranging from 1,700 to 20,000. That said, all navigation is via SSI or Frames so that any site wide change is limited to a few files. Site wide css controls basic displays, though some pages have internal css overrides for specific content.
