I don't know if this suggestion is in another league, out(side) of wput's scope as would wget functions be if implemented in wput (they work together nicely), but I'll just give you the suggestion.

The suggestion is to upload the (wput?) generated index.html, which is built to effectively append all the (new) files in a folder alfabetically. Be it .txt, .rtf or html, together making up the page on top of each other (appended, such as
<object data=.. <embed src=..,
but continuous.).

Thus a folder containing
1_header.html
2_some_text.txt
4some-more-rich-text.rtf
7_mscweb.html
7a_mscweb2.html
7e-mscweb31.html (messy naming, but you'll get the idea is the intention:)
8_a_standalone_image.png
14_some_more_contents.html (this one might not sort properly.. and end up under "1_", so..)
88_some_more_contents.html

If a new file is added to this map, the only file then that changes (and uploads as it does currently with wput) is the aforementioned index.html. (I don't know if there is an <append> html function though, to render one continuous html file, but .txt files and .rtf documents can be converted supposedly on the fly to html, and image files I know there is <img> tagging.. might be a challenge to pull off.) And anything I can think of. Might be a good idea.

It may be easy and an alternative to manage a webpage this way. It might be user friendly, be it in cooperation with other tools.

So if you like the idea it's yours, but hopefully your work is recognized already; one can always take things for granted, and realize somebody actually took the effort, even though most of the time it's good fun. Best wishes then. And thanks for your work. It's priceless.

I think it's very easy to use to maintain a site in this manner, and probably beats many (great by the way) cms alternatives.
