Feasability question

Hi, I just posted about a problem with XML::Simple, but I have another, more wide ranging question.

I'm thinking about a website that will dynamically display web pages based on an XML file. Specifically, it is a family tree in XML format.

I envision an 'init' program which will read the XML file, and create two static pages, "index of individuals" and "list of surnames". When you click on an individual, another program would dynamically generate the page.

I think it's doable, question is what's the best language to use? I've just started with Perl, and know nothing about PHP, but they seem like the two best choices.

If I use Perl, do I want to use a DBM file so I don't have to parse with XML::Simple everytime I need a page?

Thanks

You might want to look at XSL with XSLT. It transforms XML code into XHTML for such things as a webpage.
It is made specifically for styling XML into other formats and navigating the XML.
