Classes for Generating HTML

I have a need to produce data-base backed web pages that (a) are long-running and (b) only need to be refreshed once a day.

Is the solution to use ASP.Net and fiddle w/caching?

Or are there .Net classes that make generating HTML easy, i.e. make an html table out of a 2-d array?

The System.Web.UI.WebControls.Table class is as close as you get to tightly wrapping a table in OO. You might also consider the DataGrid class, which takes database data and displays it in a grid (aka, table).
