Hi All,
I am adding articles to my portal. What I wanted to know is what is the best way to store and display articles. Should the article and all the information pertaining to it be stored in a database system or in a file system ? Secondly, how the formatting of the articles is taken care of ? As some of them may have pictures associated with them and others don't. Kindly help. Thanks for your time.

Sounds like a perfect use case for a CMS.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
