HTML and ASP/PHP serve two completely different purposes.
HTML is used for pages that present fixed content and do not need to
change each time they are requested. - i.e. your set a page for your
ASP/PHP is used to construct pages "on the fly" where the content
displayed is different depending on user input. - i.e. an on-line
Most systems are set up to serve both types of pages and many site use
both types of pages where appropriate. So while ASP/PHP pages may
consume more system resources, the benefits of using them in the
appropriate situation usually outweigh the extra system load.
