What you can do is create the page within your catalog (perhaps in a 
subdirectory), then use the static page building function to build a static 
copy and place it in you public html directory (I glanced at the Static* 
directives for catalog.cfg and it appears that they support this, but I may 
be wrong).

An alternative is to create the page in your catalog like before, then use 
a shell script to build a static copy and put it in your public html directory:

GET http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/yourcat/yourpage.html >temp
perl -i -p -e 's/\?id\=[\w\d]{8}//g' temp
mv temp /home/you/html/index.html

Save the above in a file and run it as a shell script.  If all is well, you 
can use cron to call the script at the interval of your choice (i.e. 
nightly) to update your static page as your catalog content changes. Note 
that you need the LWP::Simple Perl module installed for this to work (GET 
is a script that comes with LWP::Simple).
