I was thinking that you are desiring a "hard" archiving... This wasn't 
planned on TODO! :-P

So, the method described above works like a bookmark system, and all 
news will be kept on their respective news.html (the most recent news 
will just be added to it), right? Is there not the risk of the 
news.html file become too big? Think about it. ;-)

With "hard" archiving (I mean move the old news to separate files) it is 
still possible. I will send the finished archive_news.pl script ASAP, 
so you can see how it works.
