WordPress is a free and useful state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards and usability. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.
More simply, WordPress is what you use when you want to work with your blogging software, not fight it.
Here are some key features of "WordPress":
· Full standards compliance - Every bit of WordPress generated code is in full compliance with the standards of the W3C. This is important not only for interoperability with today's browser but also for forward compatibility with the tools of the next generation. Your web site is a beautiful thing, and you should demand nothing less.
· No rebuilding - Changes you make to your templates or entries are reflected immediately on your site, with no need for regenerating static pages.
· WordPress Pages - Pages allow you to manage non-blog content easily, so for example you could have a static "About" page that you manage through WordPress. For an idea of how powerful this is, the entire WordPress.org site could be run off WordPress alone. (We don't for technical mirroring reasons.)
