SE friendly URLS vs. HTML files

Hi,

I have a pretty basic website, it has a sitemap, linking to a whole bunch of articles, each article is an HTML file.

It would be easier for me to turn it into a PHP app and have it residing in a Database, and then use Search Engine friendly URLS to avoid the dynamic URLS.

But I get a funny feeling that Search Engines might not index the Search Engine Friendly URLS as happily as indexing HTML files. Are they really the most Search Engine friendly solution we have?

Whats the best? I'm happy to work with the Search Engines here...

I would just rename the html files into friendly urls?

Then link them from your sitemap area, i would also create a tutorials page of which you store the links to the pages with a brief description.
