My favourite website generator is Emacs. ;) Seriously, I never understood why I should learn a markup language which gets translated into HTML (another markup language) if I could learn/write the target markup language directly without depending on a intermediate layer.

It really depends on what you need :-)

On the merits of using a good web generator: Let's say you want to generate a list of blog entries on your index page (like it's more convenient to generate such a list from a database rather than write the complete HTML each time, especially if you also want to distribute that list in other forms (such as right now I do this by hand, but this can be quite annoying when you add more features, etc.

And I like markdown :-)
