Okay. Work well to what purpose? Do you want to obtain a deeper level
of understanding about the subtler aspects of web development (hence
writing your own framework is probably a good task) or is speed of
development a bigger concern? Are you designing for cross platform
(mod_perl/ISAPI/etc) compatability or can you not afford to sacrifice
any performance hit at all?

why are these the attractive options? might be worthwhile listing the
advantages/disadvantages that you see in these and see if anyone else
can think of other points.
