Forrest can use simple HTML if you save it as *.ihtml

My suggestion would be to generate a Forrest usable site with ihtml 
pages using cheetah, and then publish it so that a dynamic Forrest can 
show it nicely skinned.

This way we get the best of all:

1 - use templates
2 - can see pages without running Forrest
3 - don't even need to run static Forrest
