The engines really don't have a problem with the first type of URL these days, so before you make any major changes, first check to see ifyour URLs are already getting indexed fine the way they are.

1. Use static URLs to reference dynamic content.
If a search engine sees a static URL, it is more likely to index the
content at that URL than if it found the same content under a dynamic
URL. Therefore, you can turn your dynamic URLs into static URLs
despite the fact that you are serving dynamic content. There are a
number of ways of achieving this, and your method will vary depending
upon your server and other factors.
Is this no longer true?

The search engines have gotten a lot better since then about indexing dynamic content. As they should since there is considerably more dynamic content out there today.
These days, as long as you don't have a ton of modifiers in the URL address, don't require cookies and don't require a session id you're pretty safe. I try to keep the number of variables to 3 or less, 2 or less preferrably for newer sites. That seems to work quite well.

Just look at most dynamic sites (e.g., this forum) the dynamic looking URLs get indexed just fine.

I find that as long as the Serach engine can get to the page it will index it.
I'm am number one with a couple of product keywords.
These products/keywords are just palin vanilla Classic ASP, with the most convolted URL you've ever seen.
My static pages rank lower than my Dynamic Pages.
