I have about 500 html pages on my basic html site right now. The current cart i use (mals-e) posts the item variants and cost to the cart system. I’d like to convert to something more robust and am hoping magento might be it. Is there a way to keep my html pages so i can maintain rank and post the items to the magenta cart rather than mals-e? then I could keep my site identical and use the admin - then do a slower migration over time.

I have been using another expensive system that is just dog slow on the database side of things and they were able to write some code to allow this to work - seemed to be a simple process as they did it for me very fast. Sample code of what i have now:

<form action="" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="userid" value="556789">
<input type="hidden" name="return" value="">
<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr class="lrhardwaretxt">
<td width="80%"><span class="h3">Alta Dummy Handleset</span><span class="Doorhardware2"> <b>Price: $71.50</b></span></td>
<td align="right"> </td>
<tr valign="middle" class="lrhardwaretxt">
<td width="80%"> Select a Finish:
