I think both are nearly negligible.  For (a), two trivial (for you;
let the contributors maintain them) implementations of "one big page"
have been suggested already.  For (b) it's static content.  Octet
count is modest (few if any images, no voice or movies), so bandwidth
is negligible.  What matters is hit count, and "one big page"
(especially for reference material, which can be cached and accessed
locally) clearly wins there.
