IBM.com has a detailed story about Midgard, an Open Source system based on PHP that "takes over the job of looking after content,
allowing you to concentrate on site aesthetics and functionality. Server-side scripting languages such as PHP are great for creating dynamic, creative, and compelling Web sites. Unfortunately they
have always left the mechanics of creating, rendering, and administering dynamic content to the script author -- until now."
