We have a potential client who’s unhappy with the way his current web host/designer is treating him (that co. was bought out by a soulless and disinterested mega-hosting service, which won’t even acknowledge his existence, much less do web design work).
So we said we might be able to take over his site (and site maintenance … and potentially some print design work … etc.). The only problem: it’s in ColdFusion, which is not our preferred server-side language (we use ASP). But the site itself, though kind of large (page-count-wise) is not terribly dynamic. It looks mostly like the ColdFusion is being used in a template fashion and to operate an events calendar.
What would the site lose if we just copied the HTML output/image files and set everything up again as HTML, rather than CFM?
(Our other option is to buy and learn ColdFusion, which I do not relish.)
