There is nothing wrong with CGI per se. On the contrary, using
CGI puts the processing burden on the server -- where it belongs,
IMO -- instead of trying to use JavaScript and other "client-
side" code to shift the processing burden to the visitor.

OTOH -- while I know nothing of Earthlink's "Click-N-Build" --
each and every "build it in minutes" tool I've ever seen was an
absolute disaster, resulting in buggy sites and pathetic search
engine rankings.
