In fact, INETS can also generate dynamic content. You can execute Erlang
code in INETS.

What you should look for is: mod_esi (Erlang Scripting Interface):
  http://www.erlang.org/doc/r7b/lib/inets-2.5.3/doc/html/mod_esi.html
  
I wrote a french article on this topic and I could translate it if you
are interested.
This is a very nice feature to create a web interface to setup the
parameter when developping an Erlang server.

If I remember correctly, BTT use INETS to serve its dynamic content,
and Mnesia as its database.
  
The other alternative is mod_erl (which is preliminary implementation
of an Erlang module for the Apache web server). You can get it at:
