Xastir has automatic "snapshot" capability built-in, so it can take
a snapshot of the map screen every XX minutes (set by a timing
slider) and create a PNG image.  You then set up the Apache
webserver (or whatever web server you wish to run) to be able to use
that image.  In other words, Xastir won't make any HTML pages, but
you can display serve up a PNG image directly or embed that image
inside some other HTML page.  Works great.
